May I introduce you to Pochahontas?
|Pretty hat and dress|
|I even knit her a shawl|
|Back view of shawl|
My first attempt at a felt doll, which stands around fourteen inches high. I have realized that felt does not make for a good hairstyle so will try another with wool and other improvements. I think I may now give her some beads in the hair and some sparkle.
