No, just Little Miss Cuddly! Generously proportioned curves in all the right places. She is 'Babushka Beauty' from Handmade magazine Vol 25 No 10 by the very talented Jhoanna Monte Aranez. I couldn't find the perfect flesh-coloured felt for the face (other than a sickly shade of apricot!), so used linen instead. Nor could I find the perfect red-coloured felt for the cape, so went with red & white spotty fabric. Considering the aforesaid lack of felt, Little Miss is constructed on a foundation of thin pellon for stability. The girls in our house all think she is pretty cute. The boys are eyeing her off as an ideal football! I am thinking how wonderful she would look on the shelf with three or four progressively smaller sisters - ooooh, but we won't go there!
