Dolly-makin'

We received notice of a drive at church to collect necessities for the refugee children from Central America. There are boxes for toothbrushes, and other hygiene products, clothes and dolls.
The Eldest and I decided to make a doll.
When I asked her how many we should make she told me that there are thousands of kids, but we compromised and decided that 8 was a good number.
Here are the first five. The sixth doll is on my sewing machine, but I just broke the needle so it'll be a little while before I dig out our extra needles and finish up the last three.
I am using the Olive  and Archie patterns from Wee Wonderfuls.
I had forgotten that the heads come out a little weird,  but I'm choosing to embrace it. The fabric was mostly from my stash, except the faces, which helps us declutter, so this project is good all around
