Funny how dolls look with no hair! Her brown fuzzy lambs wool hair was needle felted into pigtails. She's quite a happy little girl and is finally done. I love her dress fabric. It is a lovely cotton fabric with green, brown and teal colors. The print is beautiful flowers and butterflies.
She is jointed at the shoulders and thighs and can sit nicely. Under the dress she has on white cotton underpants.

Cecelia is a little African American Doll and Deanna Hogans instructions are precise. After making the first two dolls I used my own head style this time around (I hope the designer won't mind). Her clothing instructions are also well done.

|Wool Rabbit Doll by Bethann Scott|
Easter is just around the corner and I thought I would sew another rabbit doll. The rabbit is made with a wool blend fabric. He is 10" sitting with legs up.The tummy, muzzle and tail have sheep's wool needle felted in place. I wanted to make some eggs so I thought I would try needle felting. I used sheep's wool for the egg base (instead of wool batting or roving). Then I needle felted wool crewel yarn to the egg. It took forever! No wonder the prices for needle felted art are so high. I don't think this type of art is for me unless it is very small. That's why the next two eggs were sewn with wool. I just didn't want to take the time to needle felt two more eggs.

The rabbit is button jointed so he can sit with legs up or down. This is the first time I used wool for a rabbit body and I love it. It looks so good!
