Making dolls can take me a while. I start with a pattern I designed, then transfer to the fabric, sew, stuff, hand-stitch joints, hand-stitch legs and arms onto the body. Now I'm ready to create the face and hair. Then the process of staining begins which usually takes days. Don't forget the dresses and any accessories! It takes me a while to do it, especially since I do it on a part-time basis. These dolls are a lot larger than usual, and they will all look so different when finished!
