Siggy Doll

I have wanted to make the Siggy doll since I received the premiere issue of Soft Dolls and Animals in 1997.

Umm…yes…1997.  I was going to make the doll for my daughter.  Somehow, time has gotten away from me.

So, I have made two dolls…one for each granddaughter.

I think I lost my mind!  I thought that it would be fun to alter the simple pattern a bit.

I have a new respect for doll makers!

I tried making bendable fingers…that was tough.

I tried making toes.  That was tough.

Worst of all was the hair.  Whatever was I thinking?!  Hot glueing a bunch of tangled, curly hair was tremendously boring and tedious for me! 

Oh nooooo…I couldn’t just buy a wig…or make one.  I had to glue this stuff by individual strands.

Sometimes, I am an idiot.

These dolls have more hair than Cousin Itt!

I shall be making a dress outfit for each doll.

Should be a piece of cake.

  6. Long ago I made dolls…lots of dolls… For the hair I made big u shaped templates. Mine were formica but you could use plexi glass or something else sturdy. I wound yarn around the template and then with my machine, sewed a ziz zag stitch down the center. Then slid the “hair” off the end and hand stitched to the head. Make as many as you need to cover the head. Hope this helps in the future..

I love hearing from you!
