My youngest niece seems to get into trouble with her big sister for 'borrowing' her rag doll so I thought it would be nice to make her one of her own for Christmas. Gosh, can't stop saying the 'C' word now...Christmas. There, that's enough I think.
So, I used the pattern in Mollie Makes but instead of using muslin as per instructions I've gone off piste because a. I couldn't find what I had left of the muslin I had in my stash without pulling lots of things out and b. I thought it would be softer to use the lovely off white fleece I had in my stash and therefore am stash busting too.

I also ignored the instructions to make the body out of patterned fabric so that it looks like the dress as thought it would be nicer to make clothes for the doll...yeah, regretting THAT one already, well it'll be alright in the end but she's got no real shoulders so things hang a bit wrong.
Here she is in all her glory, look away if you're of a nervous disposition as she's naked! Oh!
