I made this little cutie for the daughter of a friend for her 1st birthday. This was before I painted her eyes and mouth with black fabric paint though. She's a little bowling pin-headed, so next time I will add some girth to the neck area. But all-in-all I would say she was a success! I wasn't sure about how thrilled a one year old would be about a doll (is 1 too early to play with dolls??) - but she loves it! Winner!
