A Doll for a Little Boy

This is Lesli's baby boy!

Lesli wanted to give her darling baby boy a doll with golden skin, brown eyes, straight embroidered brown hair, and clothes which are not too bright. I chose dark gray pinstriped flannel for the pants, and an abstract dotty blue fabric for the shirt. She wanted the shirt untucked, with velcro fasteners.

Look at this lovable face. It is open and friendly. He seems to be saying, "Let's play!"

I embroidered his hair with a part in it.

It is tufty and fuzzy with sweet ears outlined by the embroidery. I put a little non-toxic German blush on the cheeks. I hope your baby likes his new friend, Lesli! love, Beth
