I need to be really familiar with the pattern and construction techniques for the doll design I am going to test so I am making a few of them, hoping to standardise my work. Here is the second doll I have made to this design, and she has quite a different character from the first (see my previous post, ‘Next in Line’). I tell myself that I need to practice this model but actually I think I’m just putting off making ‘the doll that will be burnt’ for testing. I received some new skin fabric yesterday in a colour that I’m not sure I like, so perhaps that one will be for the fire. I really hope this pattern passes the test now as I’m getting to like it very much.
