A baby's Doll

A few months ago a friend asked me to make a doll for his new great granddaughter. Because she was a baby I couldn't use paint and buttons or anything harmful to a baby. You would think that would be easy but for me it wasn't. However, I finally made her face and hands from soft flannel, her clothes were held on by hook and loop. Her face was appliqued felt. After she was finished I gave her to my friend and the next time I saw him he happily reported that his great granddaughter is never without her handmade one of a kind Dollie. A happy ending!
