Mollie Makes - doll pattern

The current birthday issue of Mollie Makes has a really good Mollie Dollie pattern to try, created by Laura Hunter. 
I thought I would have a go yesterday as I had a lovely piece of vintage fabric which would make a very groovy dress.

The pattern was quite easy to follow and I got all my bits chopped out, decorated the hair and face, fabric penned some stripey socks on her legs and I was ready to stitch up.

Stitching up just requires a bit of patience as you have to tuck the arms and legs inside the body bit whilst you sew, before turning right sides out.
It wasn't too bad and by the end of the day I had my Mollie Dollie. She reminds me a bit of Jemima from Playschool, now that's showing my age!

Here she is enjoying the super duper Mollie magazine!
