Over The Hill Signature Doll

These make great little signature dolls for those who are turning 40 or over the hill. You could consider these as a great gag gift idea!

Over The Hill Signature Doll

What you need

Calico
Wool or doll hair
Toy filling
Sewing machine
Felt pens
Bead garland for necklace (optional)



Instructions

You need to create a basic doll shape and cut it out of fabric. For a signature doll use a calico or plain light colored fabric.

Cut out 2 body shapes and sew around the edges.

Turn the doll the right side out and using a pen push out any edges in the hands and legs till it is all turned the right side out.

Then using your toy filling stuff the doll from the leg’s up remembering to keep it firm enough so you can write against it.

Keep filling the doll till you reach the head, then using some glue or a few hand stitches close up the head.

Use your waterproof felt pens to draw on some facial features and glue on the hair along the head seam.

You can add as much or as little detail as you want to your doll.

Take it along and have everyone sign it with a permanent laundry marker as a great keepsake doll.
