Remember how I made a book that's now for sale? Well I've also made a toy version of the main character to act as a mascot when I'm selling the book at craft fairs.
This was the first time I've made a toy like this so my method involved a lot of trial and error.
I made a paper pattern for each of the body parts and then got sewing and stuffing.
Sewing the limbs to the main body was pretty tricky and things looked a bit creepy for a while.
I used felt for the hair and shoes, and drew on the eyes, mouth and nose.
I used the only purple fabric I had for the dress and stuck on little pink dots to match the illustrations.
I love how this little doll turned out and I think she will look great sat next to a pile of books for sale.
