I made this rag-style doll for a friend's second birthday All organic cotton and stuffed with bamboo fiber.

any suggestions for doll #3, who will (I think) be a green fairy?
and doll #4 who has been requested by a 2 1/2 year old to have no hair? How would I make it nice with no hair?
The hair on this one took my about a month of baby naps because it is individually handsewn.

Very sweet!

Maybe a different style of doll for the hairless one?I made a hairless doll for my daughter but it was less 3 dimensional(if that makes any sense).Just 2 circles(head) and a neck sewn right sides together and then turned right sides out.
