Step 1

Stuff the stockings with polyester fiberfill until it reaches your desired doll height. Tie off the ends and cut off the excess. Insert a double thread through the stockings right where the neck area should be and wrap the thread around several times, pull it tight enough to form the neck then make a knot. Insert the needle through the bottom center of the body, then pull out the needle from the middle of the body’s front area, repeat several times until you form the legs. Measure the socks to fit the body, then cut them out, wear them on the doll, and stitch the collar of the shirt. Insert a white sock at the head about halfway for the hairline, then insert pins, and mark where the eyes and nose will be. Next, find out where you want the ears to be and sew it.
