Another Harvest Moon Doll

Today I finished a second Harvest Moon doll, this time without the Fall colors. I had a harder time stuffing this doll smoothly, I'm not sure why. Perhaps it was the fabric, which was 65% cotton, 35% poly. The original doll may have been made of 100% cotton, I'm just not sure.

Her hair is fringed trim. Next time, I'll try gluing it on before unravelling the loose edge of the fringe. This may make it easier to find all those pins holding the trim in place while the glue dries.

I'm thinking I'll use this pattern for my Hoffman Challenge entry, but the rules limit the size of the doll. That means I'll have to shorten her a little - probably a half inch in the torso and in the thighs.

The new Harvest Moon doll is lovely. I particularly like the fabric of her skirt, a bit retro. Now I am energized to try this pattern. I've been in a blue funk lately and needed a jump start. Good thing I can always turn to your patterns and get the goose I need!
