I made a Pippi Longstocking doll for Phoebe. (see notes below and in comments) I thought she’d get a kick out of her poseable braids – instant updo! She’s in Phoebe’s room right now, playing around, waiting for her to come home. I really want to knit her something. Some sort of wonky uneven sweater. I don’t have the right yarn though. We’ll see if I can get my hands on some before the March sisters hair yarn arrives.
notes: I used the Elise/Elsa pattern but added full head of yarn hair instead of just bangs. Also she has bent button joint arms instead of the straight arms. Body is wool felt and vintage heavyweight cotton fabric. Legs are quilting cotton fabrics, hair is this yarn. I used floral wire through the braids to make them bendable.
