Presbyterian cloth doll

My helper..Angel,My 4 legged daughter...( ya know when the kids grow up and leave the nest we parents go to the dog's:) No matter where I roam she is right behind me.I do mean ALL day long....Here she is NOT looking at me because I was taking pictures of a doll on the floor and I yelled at her to get..She was ready to step on the doll to get to me..SO when I wanted to take her picture.... I was begging her..using all the sweet names I knew..Nope she wasn't having any of it, instead she turned on a *Attitude* Which was.. Oh yea now you want me.Ha!....nope you yelled at me now I won't even look at you !:) Yep that's my helper!!!
(Doll on the left in the picture)Cinders using her own pattern created her Presbyterian cloth doll
Cinders also owns a real Vintage Presbyterian cloth doll on the right...

Vintage Cloth doll making a yahoo group is having a really awesome
challenge actually two options challenge..I have decided to do the
Presbyterian cloth doll challenge..It is really a fabulous pattern created by
Lucinda C. Durbin (Cinders)
I am making two this is the small one she is about 12 inches..
I am stuffing the second one now , she is 17 inches..
I haven't attached her legs yet because I 'm going to paint them first.
She is a challenge because every thing for me is a new learning experience!
A exciting experience I must say. I'm just loving the creating time with this dolls body.
Her I'm showing the gusset she has in her head. A side view.
Also attaching the arm was a new way for me to..I enjoyed the hand tiny stitches I used to attach the arms..This doll will diffidently be a keeper for me..Probably the second one too.. I'm making also..There is a feel and personality already about her..
I can actually say I'm in love with this little gal! already..
