Resting Comfortably

One of my original dolls came for a visit yesterday. Sharon (for that is what they call her, how sweet is that?) is so well-loved that the back of her head wore through. Seams still good (thank you, triple stitch), but the felt on the back of her head actually wore through. She had been patched by a loving grandma, but the felt around the patch wore out.  Time for something different.

She came to me looking like this:

That is wool stuffing coming out of the back of her little, well-loved head.

She is now resting comfortably, looking like this:

Instead of trying another patch, I decided to make her a new head. This time, I put a double layer of wool felt at the back of her head, since we know this little girl likes to hold and cuddle her dolly there.

Sharon (dolly Sharon, that is) is now resting comfortably, waiting for her ride. Matty was quite taken when he found her on the porch this morning! He sang a little song while he rocked her. Let’s hope this dolly’s mama is impressed, too!
