Doll for Ruby

So I have Jake's family for Christmas, so I am making Ruby a doll. This is what I've made so far. I think she's done. If I do anything else- I'll add some tights or shoes or something, maybe a bow in the hair, otherwise you've got the idea of it. This one- I don't know if you can tell in the pictures but the face has more definition. She has a tiny nose, and cheekbones, and eye indentions. Amy Heid. taught me last night. And then- the skirt- I used the scraps from my quilt to do that, I didn't even have to piece it. When I straighted out the sides of my quilt, I ended up with 1-2 inch strips and i thought it could come in handy later for dolls- I'm so glad I saved them.
