What are you most proud of? Making a doll! I make stuffies all the time but I never thought to make an actual doll. This is quite small - about 10" top to bottom - but just the right size for my two-year-old to snuggle.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The felt hair is finicky. I ended up stitching the entire thing to the head of the doll. I originally only wanted to do a few stitches. But it didn't sit right. Just be prepared to play around with it. (I cut it in two pieces, sewed it together with wrong sides facing, flipped it inside out and put it on the doll like a hat.)

So cute. Love the unique hair.
