A place to share and discuss cloth and crochet dolls made by hand.

I've been wanting to play around with faces on dolls, so I made up several heads to work with. For me, on crochet, the simplest faces seem to work the best. I wasn't real happy with the face on the peach head (the one with the dark red curls) so I picked out the embroidery and reworked it.
Don't be afraid to rework your doll; they are really quite patient and both of you will be happier :-)
All of the heads were crocheted with Vanna's Choice yarn with the exception of the peach complexion, which is Red Heart Classic in light peach.
I worked up the dark toffee colored doll first, as a little cat girl with Lionbrand Fun Fur for hair. She has furry underwear that her tail is attached to, and little ears peeking out of her shaggy hair. I love this rich colored skin tone, and gave her gold eyes, the better to see in the dark :-)
This is Mehitabel. If you recognize the name, can you tell me who her best friend is?
