in hoop baby
I loved making her but would like to have the general sizes of fabric. Also was confused in the directions, had to read them over and over.
Meet April, our posable baby doll! She is made in the 4x4, 5x7, 6x10, and 8x12 hoops! Posable April can be made with doll joints or without doll joints or a mixture of a plastic doll joint head with sewn in arms and legs. She is made 100% in the hoop on your machine except for sewing the openings on her body. April has full range of motion. She can put her arms behind her head and stare up at the stars, has one leg out straight and the other bent, she can pose with her tushy in the air, swing her legs, sit on her own, and even DAB!
