I just finished this a few days ago. I took her to work to show off and everyone thought she was really cute. I make a lot of plastic canvas items for our county fair. One of our miscellaneous categories is stuffed dolls. It can be any technique, crochet, sewing, etc. I will admit that plastic canvas stuffed dolls and animals don't usually win over cuddly ones, but it's fun making something different, and showing people you can use plastic canvas for items besides coasters and tissue covers. I'm working less days because of Covid-19 affecting our volume of business, so I'm having more time to work on things. However, I am trying not to make extra trips to get supplies. I was able to make this using what I had on hand. I don't sew very much so the only piece of fabric I had that was long enough for her skirt was a red background with turquoise and teal flowers with some white ones, too. I made her blouse in the teal, and it so happened I had a jewel package in my stash that had a turquoise cameo that was the right size to use on her blouse instead of a button. I used a red ribbon for her waist. I had just enough light peach yarn to use for her skin, so I gave her orange-red hair to go with her light complexion. I didn't use the doll hair--I used turkey loop stitches all over the back of her head and the edge stitches at the front of her face, and I glued a teal ribbon bow at the top of her head. It hid the joint where the head pieces come together.
