This is my most recent baby doll! I love him.  It is so lovely to find a craft that I can settle into that so thoroughly pleases and satiates me. I have done so many different types of crafts and nothing quite grabbed me like doll making has. I feel so giddy when I put the finishing touches on a doll, only to find out they have a totally unique expression and personality from all the other ones I have made. I love the way this little guy looks all snuggled up in that grey wool, so peaceful and cute, I just want to snuggle right in there with him.  Now, I am off to make some more dolls, and order more velour!

Wow I have been totally consumed by this doll making thing. I thought about it one day, got supplies for it the next and then feel into a deep abyss of crafting a la miniature. I carefully shaped the head using cotton stockinette and skin colored cotton interlock. Then I wove the hair onto the wig, which involved making a small hair colored crocheted cap for the doll and half hitching each hair into the scalp. next I had to make the body which surprisingly enough was the most challenging part for me! It took me a while but after a few missed meals and a lot of Papa taking care of Cedar I finally had a doll that I was happy with. If only the madness stopped there, then it was time for a miniature version of the jacket I made for Cedar this winter so she could match her new doll, and a sweet pair of reversible pants.  The best part about it is that every time Cedar sees her doll she squeals and hugs her close, I could not have thought up a better reaction.
