On the weekend I had a go at making a Mollie doll from issue 14 of Mollie Makes. It was a great scrap-buster, making good use of an old pillowcase, scrap patterned fabric and my massive felt collection (no idea how I have accumulated so much felt!)I am really pleased with the result, and have another 4 in the pipeline already (both as presents and orders).
The pattern calls for the face features to be made with felt scraps, but I always come unstuck with cutting out and placing a matching pair of eyes. So I did a quick hunt on Pinterest and found a great link with doll facial feature ideas. I will definitely be referring to that again in the future. I just drew the details on in pencil and then embroidered on.
I think I will be keeping her, as she is not quite perfect. I had issues getting her legs in place, so will need to make some tweaks next time. I think I should probably be not so hard on myself, as it is only me who notices the fact her skirt hem is a bit squiff!
