And then there were three

Hello everyone!

I finished my third doll on Sunday, here she is sitting with her sisters, she really did not want a photo taken because she does not have all her hair! I told her she looked fine. Sunday was such a nice day, sunny with a nice breeze so I sat out on my new chair and did the hand sewing on their dresses, adding buttons/snaps and hemming. I also finished another little gal, but she refuses to have her photo taken because she does not have any hair.

The Raggedy "hair" is hand-dyed sheep wool which I am waiting to arrive, hopefully today, from Vermont. The seller is FolkartfromVermont ebay ID, Lowell Country Design is the shop. I have purchased wool from her before and I am very happy with it. The wool is needle felted onto their head, it goes so quickly, but you have to be careful not to jab your fingers, those needles are very, very sharp.

Now I have to get busy doing what needs to be done and wait for the mail!
Have a great day,

I didn't know you felted their hair in. Interesting. I think they look kinda cute even without all their hair.
