Marigold

 The Denver Waldorf School auction is coming up so I made an 18" dressing doll to donate. I was making my own pattern and she ended up chubbier than I expected so she reminds me of a mischievous toddler. I'm going to make another soon to try for more elementary age proportions. Her hair is a worsted weight wool yarn and a boucle mixed, pulled through a crochet cap and sewn into two puffy ponytails with bangs.

Marigold has a cashmere sweater (upcycled from an old adult sweater), with hand embroidery around the cuffs and collar. Her wool felt button also has a flower embroidered on it and matches her embroidered wool shoes.
A light cotton shirt and shorts have elastic at the neck and waist so she's easy to dress.

A little freehand design with white flannel and fusible velcro fasteners for her little diaper.
