I saw a doll like this on eBay and either didn't win her or didn't try. She was one of those dolls made from a printed cotton pattern. I decided to make my own. She is cotton fabric, painted with gesso then acrylics. Her hat is the result of finally working out how fingers on gloves are made, but not actually making any gloves! I was looking through an interiors magazine a while after making her, and in some photos of a woman's house, spotted the exact same doll on her mantle piece.
