    blonde "lily" doll

    hi, caitlinsmom! I did the hair like the pattern suggested, but I cut a big hank of around 50 pieces of 20 inches each. I sewed it down the middle on the head, then braided or pigtailed it. As far as the mouth and eyes go, I think they are the hardest part of a stuffed animal, except maybe the sewing and weaving in. for these the yarn I used for the eyes just luckily stitched up right. for the mouth I use an embroidery stitch, then go back over it with little "fence posts" in the opposite direction (hope that makes a bit of sense) but believe me, I have to take it out and re-do quite often. In fact, the blond one has a blue stain around one eye where I had to take the first attempt out and the yarn bled. hope that helps, and I just bet your dolls were real cute!
