When you find a knit top in black and white stripes, there's not much choice but to make a zebra! Zelda started off with a different set of eyes.
These eyes are buttons and, even though they went with color in the hair, I wasn't happy with them. Still, I had taken the first set of pictures before I decided to change the eyes from buttons to pompoms.
Early stage - all of my dolls, except Gilda, have the head and body cut in one piece.
Her hair is yarn that I crocheted, hooking to long running stitches on her head.
Zelda, from a couple more angles.
I sewed joints into her legs so that she's be able to sit.
Lastly, front view that shows the convergence of the stripes.
