Cloth Dolls and Toys Inspired The Happiest Childhood Memories

I finally finished the two little heads I created about a month ago - they're christmas presents, so thank goodness I didn't leave it till the last minute! I created a simple pattern for these two and boy did they come out differently - position of their heads, not to mention their features.
On top of that I was able to finish 8 of these little ladies (plus a dozen stars) for a local shop that specialises in local handmade items. I've named these Leura Ladies, and unfortunately I didn't take photos of all of them. Two were so sweet with their red caps and red and white bathers. Next time. They're only small, about 4 inches, but I tried to capture as much detail as possible in small a piece. I've hand drawn each face and hand painted them using acrylics - no stencils or printed images here! I just love painting faces - getting each to look different is such a buzz.
