One of my purchases in America was this doll's head. She is bald and has no body, but other than that is perfect! I felt that she needed a hat so I crocheted one from lovely orange yarn I bought ages ago at the Unravel show. I wanted to do some needle felting to decorate it. I was inspired by all the fresh and delicious food we had in America and so the idea for Baby Bellingham came about. I now want to do her an Autumn, Winter and Spring hat. Linda Sue has given me a couple of ideas in her latest post for red apples, crunchy leaves, weird caterpillars and fallen feathers. She also sent me a link to a sunflower pattern and the picture inspired my own sunflower. It is made from variegated yellow yarn I bought in Bellingham.
She has strawberries, blueberries, cherries, an apple, a fish and a sunflower.
She lives in the back room on the almost usable blue picnic table with the plastic head girls.
These are two other doll projects awaiting. The red haired doll has been waiting for a long time for a dress. The wool haired doll has only been waiting since Friday when I brought her home from Battlesbridge. All she needs is one side of her hair re-plaiting and re-attaching to her head which is easier than making a dress so may happen sooner!
