Meet Una, my beloved rag doll that I made as a school project back in the early 90s. She’s from an out-of-print Vogue pattern 8336 which included the iron-on transfer face. Her arms and legs move on teddy bear joints and at the time was one of the most challenging things I’d ever sewn.

Her emo fringe hides her eyes as mine did at the time, and her asthetic is more Winona Ryder than Laura Ingalls Wilder because I’ve never been one for twee.

Sadly I don’t have the second doll I made from the pattern about a decade ago, but am currently working on a third. She will be made from black velvet and have a cat head. Have spent most of the afternoon constructing paper cat heads to try and work out how to do it. Think I’m there now…
