hair doll


When my niece Lila was a toddler she was obsessed with twirling her mother's hair. It drove my sister crazy enough that she finally decided to cut her hair in an attempt to break the habit. She saved a lock of her hair and I used it to make Lila a doll. I kept the hair in a ponytail and dribbled some glue around the rubber band in an attempt to keep it together. I designed this simple doll using some remnant fabric I had, and sewed the ponytail into the side seam of the head. The brown hair around the face of the doll is just brown cotton fabric. Lila never really twirled the hair on this doll but it remains a cute reminder of what she was like as a much smaller girl.
