sew cute

i was sketching a simple rag doll the other day - round head, triangle body, skinny legs. i knew i wanted felt hair but sketching wasn't helping so i went to the internet for inspiration.  
i stumbled upon  retro mama and fell in love with greta. i spent hours figuring out how to execute this dolly on my own.
i made pattern pieces, rifled through my stash and the very first 'lissa doll was born.
once i get kim's actual pattern, i know i'll be able to work out the kinks of assembly. this little girl is formidable. don't let the cute fool you.
i already know of four girlies who would love their own. i fear this is about to get out of control.

I Took The Handmade Pledge!
