I had some small scraps of the knit that I use as doll skin so I decided to make a smaller Petal doll. This soft Waldorf style soft doll is suitable for an infant.
Her head is 2 inches high and 7 inches in diameter. From the top of her head (not the tip of her hat) to the hem of her dress she is 10 inches.
The first Petal doll I made had a hard core under her head. This time I wanted her to have a steady neck but a soft core. I also gave this doll real hands. Here's what I did.
I took the small Petal doll over to a neighbor who has a 10 month old little girl. I handed the doll to her mom but the little girl intercepted the handoff! She clearly knew the doll was something she wanted! Now that's what I call a success!
