As I mentioned a few weeks ago our village has a festival every 2 years and the theme this year is "Childhood". I attend a craft group that meets at the Memorial Hall every Monday and we were all given a doll to dress for an exhibition entitled " A Swavesey Childhood" in the local church on the 14-15 June.
So here is my doll. She is 11" tall, the pattern - Teddy Knitting Yarns booklet 7140 - I had, had to be amended slightly to fit her.
The hat was just a rectangle of garter stitch folded in half and then crocheted along the edge, folded back to make a brim. I added a couple of flowers just to finish it off. The little shoes were given to Jessica but were too small so I just crocheted along the top and added a chain bow. The little buttons were some I got in the charity shop, and the yarn just some double knitting yarn from stash, label long gone
