I have made loads of dolls over the years. For my grandchildren and now my great grandchildren.
I just like making them. If my friends or family don't want them I usually give them to my local help the aged charity shop.
I am making the clothes for a 24 inch doll, which is a lot bigger than I usually make. The pattern calls for Stockinette for the body, which I have never used before. I am sure I will figure it out in the end.
If not, I will make my own pattern using material like my other dolls.
