Nellie an Izannah walker Red Riding Hood Cloth Doll



Hello, this is the begining of Nellies cloak, I have never made one before. Not sure on the closure i will use either, but it sure is fun creating and wish some of you 'crafty' sisters where here with me! I used an old fabric, somewhat like bark cloth, very textured and hand dyed it red, and on the inside I used a wool fabric and dyed it also. The mixture is a bit different dont you think? Nellie is looking downward as to show the top of her cloak hood, is it too pointy? Any constructive critisism is much appreciated. Thank You girls for such lovely compliments on Nellie!!!!! Hope everyone is well and happy as fat puppies on a warm bed!
Many Fat Dollie Hugs to you all,
Jackie

I think Nellie's hood is perfect, a cloak hood can never be too pointy in my opinion ;)
It looks lovely!
