Lamb Girl

I had plans to make a doll with bias binding hair and wearing an apron yesterday. This is what I ended up with. I just couldn't seem to get the image in my head to translate. I tried ric rac for hair, then ribbon. Didn't work. Thought I'd try piggy tails (the girls are loving those at the moment). Then the apron was not working and the remains of it became a pocket. Which needed a baby. This is the result. I call her lamb girl as she looks like some kind of sheep hybrid. Amelia is convinced she is a kangaroo as she has a pouch. Grace things she is a kind of a rabbit. Evie just yelled at it in a happy way.

I opened the magazine in the paper to find this today. I was just a little excited.
