FACE

Add the eyes, nose, hair and mouth however you wish.

Note: I added buttons because this baby was made for my almost 4 year old. If you are making this doll for a baby, it may be best to embroider the eyes. :)

For the nose, I took a strand of yarn and picked up two sts on the face. I wrapped the yarn around the stitches over and over until I liked the size and shape of the nose. NOTE: Do the same thing for the navel.

    Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one!

    It’s on a totally different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
