I just cannot get it right no matter what I do. I think I have made five heads so far and this is my latest. I haven't got the mouth or eyes correct.

Here she is...her head and hair are just pinned on for the moment as is her skirt draping.
The colours are a bit different in person. I was disappointed in how the red turned out as it was supposed to be more rusty red so I may redye it to see if I can get a better colour:)
Here is the front of her coat so far.....I appliqued the pieces together by hand sewing.
The class suggests free motion stitching over the surface of the coat and I'm still thinking about whether that is what I want to do. I'm wondering if it might be a bit too busy then.
One of my classmates is The Stitch Fiddler:) IMHO she has totally nailed this doll...please go over and see how this doll should really look like:)
I'm linking up today with The Needle & Thread Network.
Please hop over and take a look and see what some of my fellow Canadians are making.
