Assembling the Doll

Use pins to place the arms and legs to find proper placement (above the color change for arms). Using the long strand from the beginning. Sew through a loop on the doll. Tie a knot and hide strand through the doll and cut. Do this for each arm and leg. Sew hair cap onto the top of the doll’s head. Use pins to hold in place so it will not become uneven as you sew. Refer to the links at the bottom of the page to create a pom-pom or different hair styles for the doll.

Cut and Style Hair

Extras

Nose

Stitch nose onto doll. Take extra yarn and stitch through a space where you would like to position the nose. One or two spaces under the eyes works best. Go over two spaces and pull through yarn into space. Pass the yarn through two or three times or until you have desired nose size.

Lips

Stitching lips onto the doll is similar to stitching the nose. Using embroidery floss (in any color you choose), stitch through a space you would like the lips to be. Pass over a few times until you have desired size. Pull ends through a hole in the doll, tie a knot and cut the remaining ends.

Adding Hair

There are lots of ways to add hair to this doll. Simply use the latch hook method around the stitches on the hair cap and add yarn strand by strand to each stitch. Then trim and style to your desire. Or add a pom-pom and sew (or glue) to top of head.

I have provided free online links for more hair references.
