InstructionsI have my own construction methods that give a better result. Leave openings in arms & legs for stuffing, encasing everything when sewing the doll together, leave opening on the side seam to turn & stuff body.

What was your inspiration?
My g-daughters asked for them. I've made them for 30 years. They are especially pretty with a brown skin color & red hair.
What are you most proud of?
I reinforce the fabric, the hair is rooted right into the scalp (ouch!) and so they are very durable. My daughter's is 30 yrs old & has been washed & dried numerous times and still looks new.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is the 25". I'd only make that or the 20" the other sizes are too big or too small. Even the 20" is a much smaller doll than this one.
