Ruby Doll Craft-Along Step 3 - Week 3

3) Embellishing: You may now want to embellish the front of the doll with buttons, trims, embroidery, ect or you may want to wait untill the doll is assembled. For the example I made, I stitched some lace onto the skirt (where piece C meets Piece B)and attached a bow button on the side of the face.

Assembling the doll: Take one side of the doll and lay it right-side up. Place arms into position using marked arm guides. Arms should be pointing inwards and downward.
Base or pin arms in place. Place legs into position with toes pointing in whatever direction you choose. Baste or int into place. See Diagram on the instructions you printed out.

Take the other side of the doll and lay it on top with right-side down so that right sides are facing each other. Pin in place ensuring both all edges line up. Stitch around the doll using 5mm seam allowance and leave an opening as marked on the pattern.
