Ruby Lou Number Two.

I have been SLOWLY working on my pattern for the Ruby Lou doll.  For this second doll I changed a few things, thanks to all your feedback during the giveaway!  I made the hair a bit different so that it would be more durable and a bit more substantial, and also changed the way her body was sewn together.  I also shortened and fattened the arms a bit.  I don’t think I will need to change too much more, I just need to get the actual pattern going now.  When I get close enough, I may be looking for some pattern testers, of all sewing abilities.  Anyone interested?  

This doll is going to a very special little girl, who will remain unnamed for now since I haven’t given it to her yet :).  I still love the braids, but I think I like her hair straight just as much.

I think my favorite part of this doll may be the embroidered initial on her behind.  Hopefully that’s not too much of a clue to who will soon be receiving her!
