I have re-visited the idea of using felt to mould a doll face with this doll - in the dim distant past I did this quite a lot, but haven't for some time, mainly because good quality wool felt is very hard to source. I like the soft, tactile quality the felt gives to a doll. Her body is calico (muslin) stained to match the colour of the felt. I had the dress - it just happened to fit very well, and the shoes are ones I bought ages ago & had hanging around. Slightly outsized, but she likes them! I made her wig from curly black lambskin.

Crossing the river from Ohio into Kentucky - on our way to MM&M
Some finished and unfinished cuties from the Zozie class
Look at that chunk of cake! Annie is incredulous and Mike is just a blur

Just wanted to let you all know that I am back from six weeks in the US - I will post some pictures of the classes and other interesting stuff when I recover from the epic fight back across the Pacific with no sleep! I will be opening my Etsy store again in a day or so - just need to catch my breath. Needless to say, I had a wonderful time. Which is just as well, because I'll be doing it all again in April 2011.
