Little Boy Doll
Elizabeth ordered a boy doll with mocha skin, light brown hair, and green eyes. We settled on brown cotton flannel for the pants, and blue and white check for the shirt, with a velcro closure. I had to give this little fellow suspenders to keep his pants up. He must be a slim like my little boy!
She also requested a hat. I made one out of navy blue wool felt. I think he has a very inquisitive expression.
I wasn't sure what green to use for the eyes at first. Green eyes are so rare, and so beautiful.
Here are some pictures of his hair, embroidered around his "ears".
And here's the back of his head, with his little cowlick. When I was embroidering the back of his head I was thinking about how irresistible the nape of my little boy's neck is, and how much I like to kiss it!
This is my last commissioned doll until school starts up again after summer! It's time to get ready for summer schedules and family fun.
