ASSEMBLY:
Sew arms to armholes and legs to torso.
Sew head and torso back seam and sew zipper in her back


This doll’s head has bigger circumference than her body, so it’s bit difficult to dress her. With the zipper, you can take off her inside, dress her and fill her again. It is also useful if you want to wash her.
Embroider eyes and mouth

HAIR:
To add hair, cut the yarn wanted for hair color into pieces, slightly longer than twice the length of the desired hair length.  Using a crochet hook or yarn needle, thread each piece through a stitch on the head and pull so that each half is even.  Tie with a knot.
This step is the most difficult one. You will need a lot of patience because this doll has a lot of hair !


BLUSH:
Final touch! Apply foundation on her cheeks.
