Meet Miss Florence, my first rag doll that I have made since I was about seven I think! My mum may well correct me, I made her at a school club (the other rag doll) she had classic woolly hair pantaloons and a pinny and I gave her to my older sister - that's love that is!
I made this from an adapted vintage pattern. Adapting the dress and coat into a hand stitched felt jacket, doing my own thing with the hair and embroidered face. I can't help tweaking patterns so that things look different, yes, sometimes this goes horribly wrong, but thankfully all went well. This was a little friend for my Goddaughter's 1st birthday, I'm sure they'll grow up to be very cheeky together.
