My friend Katy loves cuckoo clocks, dolls, and mushrooms, so when I found this sweet fabric, the perfect project presented itself!
I used the Black Apple's pattern (available at the Martha Stewart site) as a guide; it's a great simple doll pattern and easy to modify. I hand-sewed the felt limbs, and added details like shoes with baker's twine shoelaces, used a little lipstick for her blush (just put a little on a Q-tip and swirl it on; works pretty well!), made an easy scarf from a red felt scrap, and topped it off with one of my beloved vintage deer buttons. In her hand is one of those German cotton mushrooms that make everything better!
