The other day I bought some fabric and stuffing with the intention to make dolls for Paula and Isabel. I did an online search and found a free pattern and instructions here.
I am halfway done with my first attempt. I adapted some things. For example, I used the sewing machine to stitch the legs and arms closed, as opposed to tying them with string. I need to get yarn and paint and finish the head, but here's how it looks right now.
