Not exactly

bald

When sewing dolls heads - do not
(1) Use a saucer to trace the head
(2) Wait until after you have sewn the head to the body piece to trim the circle freehand
(3) Sew the heads together and think that you can 'clean it up' when attaching the hair

You cannot. (Okay - I cannot).

with hair

The purpose of the finished dolls will be explained at the end of this week...

How sweet! Are these for gifts? Very nice!

These are sweet - your do not list was funny. But the times that I've done something that didn't turn out quite like how I expected are the times I've learned the most. Now I'm curious to learn what the dolls are for.

Beth,
I made a dolly last week but forgot to photo it. . . or maybe decided no one would really like to see her. She was cute and is loved by our little friend, but I'd like another try:). Yours are sweet--love the hair.
