Beth's rag doll tutorial

Beth had the cutest rag doll on her blog,
then I got lucky because she did a super easy to follow
tutorial.  I just had to make one and in my rush I stuffed her with
left over cotton batting instead of polyfil so she is a bit lumpy.
I don't think it will matter because she will be sitting in the crib of a newborn.
 Now, my doll has to wait for her baby to be born next month :0).

My dress is made from leftover fabric used to cover the bulletin board in the baby's room.
Happy Sewing, Kim
