The second meeting, they painted the doll parts with skin and hair color and mom worked on the cloth parts.
The third meeting we painted on the facial details and shoes on the feet. Ok, I helped a little by painting on the eye whites, but they did most of the face themselves. I was impressed they did so well as they are my youngest doll making pupils ever.
Today, H & S's mom finished sewing the torsos, and then....
Hannah attached one of the arms to the arm tube before we put the arms into the shoulders and sewed her legs to the thigh tubes.
And Samantha stuffed some roving into her legs and sewed them shut. Then we slipped the arm with arm tube into the holes in the shoulder and sewed on the second arm, added the legs to the torso and VOILA! Two very nice Gail Wilson designed "Make Your Own" dolls completed by two very young doll makers.
The pantaloons went on first, then the slip, and finally the dresses. I can see these two dolls are going to be well loved!
Hannah and Samantha did a wonderful job on their dolls and can be very proud of themselves.
