George now has a little sister and likes to wrap her on his back. I made her in a different style with sewn on clothes and little balls for feet and hands. I really dig her hair.



Here's the happy recipient.
omg!! this is awesome!! the BWing is amazing!!

the noses do take some practice!! i am starting to get it better and better each time, the 4 dolls i am working on right now are my best noses yet, you just keep learning more each time you make one.

yeah i really didn't know the technique,by about the 4th try i had some clue what worked but couldn't get it perfect enough. I was running out of hot glue and decided to glue on the pom pom. It made a perfect little nose and was so easy! Props to you for doing it the 'real' way

Kate - they look great! I love the fingers and toes. :-)

FWIW, I didn't use glue at all on my dolls' noses. I'd be afraid that it would make the skin fabric wear thru more easily. I did the sewing in a circle (and made sure I grabbed plenty of wool to make it really puff up) then left it at that. Definitely make the nose bigger than you think you want it, because it looks much smaller once you stretch the skin over the top.

I agree about grabbing a lot of wool. That was one issue I had. I tried building it up with the glue, but couldn't get a smooth round glop. So I gave up and went with the pom pom. I think I'm gonna stick with my pom pom method. It gave a perfect size, soft nose
