Assembly

2) Sew on arms to doll.
3) Sew on legs to doll.
4) Decorate the dress with ribbons, puffy paint, embroidery, whatever you like!
5) Sew on hair, using pictures below as a guide.
*For the bun: add a little bit of stuffing in the bun. With a long piece of yarn in dress color, tie a tight knot at back of bun. Bring yarn to front of bun, cross the strings over each other, come to the back of the bun again and tie 2 more knots. Finally, tie a bow with the rest of the yarn and trim the ends so that they are both even.*
*Sewing to head: Have the 7 double crochets in the front of the head. These will act like bangs. The hair should be slanted, so that all of the front loops (from round 4 of the head) are covered. Stitch to head, and weave in the ends when done.

*all pics are clickable exept for the doll in the blue dress*

Wow!
Those look great!
I am still testing! My son had a birthday/pool party this afternoon, then my niece and nephew came down (they are leaving for the Jersey Shore early tomorrow morning) and my 6 year old son was throwing fits. Then he got stung by a bee on his foot!
I finally started to work on it. I have the head and body done and I'm working on the hair. Just had to check the photos quick.
Hubby is getting ready to go to work now, so after he leaves and I get my son settled down, maybe I can get it finished tonight!
