After spending a couple of years in the dark, Millie is completed. I removed her toes, they just didn't look right and I gave her a pair of shoes as well as shorts and a bikini top. I've had great fun making her and there's lots of room for improvement, I can see things in the photo that I don't like and would change and Millie needs a little more strength in her lower limbs, I'm now wandering if I should start another one. Thanks to Kay Petal and her videos on making a needle felted doll, gave me a tremendous lot of encouragement and advice.

Millie has toes now, not sure whether I like them, maybe I'll have to give her shoes and remove the toes.

For some reason the photo has disappeared from the last blog, my unfinished felt doll. So here it is again.
This is where I'm at now.
She was supposed to have a child's like body, but I'd got a little carried away. I don't like her feet, so I think I'll remove the feet and do them again.  I'll have to think of a name for her.

I started this needle felted doll some years ago, so thought it was about time it was finished if I can remember how.  I wasn't quite happy with the first head I made with the blue hair, so I started again and made the curly headed one, and made a start on the body and made the tops of the arms and legs and  then it just got left.
