Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick.

You may remember I made a dolly for my granddaughter one Christmas.  The doll was made from felt whereas I usually make dolls in calico.  While I was down in Melbourne I noticed that dolly was in the mending basket as she had suffered a bit of wear and tear.  I told my granddaughter that I would take dolly to the hospital to get fixed up and brought the doll home to repair it.

Unfortunately the doll really was beyond repair and I decided to do a complete remake, apart from the legs.  The legs had not been made in felt so didn’t require fixing.

I took the doll apart and remade it in calico.  the finished doll looks a little smaller than the original but hopefully it will be more robust than the felt one.
