Figuring

You’ve heard this before: I’m not good at following directions. That said, I could use some advice as I’m making my first ever doll …

 

for soon-to-be one year old Parker …

 

and would appreciate suggestions on what to use for stuffing (no pellets please).
In getting started I kinda liked the look of this doll on Pinterest …

 

except for the hair, the clothing, and the face. Which I changed, along with the length of the arms and the size of the feet. In any case, I couldn’t follow the directions since the tutorial was in Italian … so, suffice it to say your input would be appreciated.
Meantime, Don was cruising around Pinterest, too …

 

For inspiration that led to this …

 

A few close-ups …

 

 

 

And now I’m thinking he’s got that junk store cigar mold in his sights …

 

We do have fun …
