Vintage French Style Rag Dolls

What are you most proud of? I love that my nieces will have mementos of my childhood memories and their cousins' old t-shirts and hoodies. These dolls are very personal and kind of like instant heirlooms. What advice would you give someone starting this project? A t-shirt sleeve makes a perfect "head of hair" for each doll!

You Can Make This

These are gorgeous! I would love it if you could share more instructions on how to make the hair and perhaps the pattern. I see a few people have asked the same pattern question - where to find it? Could you please let us know? Thank you xx
