Doll - part two

The doll is finally ready and has been delivered today to the birthday boy, and this thanks to my girls! They both encouraged me to finish it when I felt more like giving up on this one. They helped me through the whole process with advice and little hints and comments like: "Mommy, when will you ever be happy with what you make. It looks great. Stop criticizing yourself, just continue". I guess they are right. I should stop doing that. And I believe the result is, well, OK. Really OK! As usual, I had a lot of trouble with the hair. It looked horrible at first - I put hair in every single hole of the crocheted cap. Not the way to do it, I realized! So, I plucked quite a few hairs out and gave the whole wig a trim. I won't sum up everything else that didn't work the way I wanted. The clothes do a pretty good job at hiding it. I actually like the pants. They were made from an old pair of jeans of M.. A perfect match with little A.'s pair of jeans. He turned two today. Happy birthday, A.! And good luck Nina and Alfonso with the "terrible twoes"!

Meisjes met veel wijsheid! Inderdaad, "Mommy, when will you ever be happy with what you make...."

The Doll looks fabulous! I don't mean to be a pain but would it be possible for you to post a pattern of it? I tried to make my own pattern for a toy for my niece or nephew (still to be announced) and it ended in disaster!
