Be comfortable with your sewing machine. Don't rush through the project, and don't be intimidated by the face details.

I love everything about this doll. The amount of work that went into it, from color choices to design details, is not only noticeable, it screams brilliantly.

Thank you so much. She turned out just like the picture in my head (and that's rare!)
