A third doll made entirely in one piece. I do like that once I get my ends woven in, I’m pretty much done. The braids on this doll like to go a little wacky. You may decide you like it better unbraided, or maybe stitch them down to the head a bit, since like Jee’s ears they like to curl up spectacularly. I think she might look really cool if you did her hair in multicolored yarn.

I’m sorry about the lousy webcam picture. Real camera needs batteries yet again…
