Sophie's Doll Family



While surfing the web, I came across a site which had Edith Flack Ackley type dollhouse doll patterns by Sara Cole. I decided to make one doll to represent each member of Sophie's family. I like this simple pattern. It brings me back to my doll making roots. The hair is made of needlefelted wool. The clothing was partially painted and I also used various cotton prints to finish off their look. I can't wait until she gets them.
