Here is Ella with her new hair. It came from a huge ball of acrylic wool, which was made in Romania.
For this pattern, some of the pieces are cut with the seam allowances included. The rest are traced onto the fabric, and then sewn on the traced line. After the piece is sewn, you cut out along the seam allowance. I guess this second method makes it easier when sewing fiddly shapes.

Not sure how I will do the felt outfit, perhaps I will start with the dress that was provided with the pattern.
Here are a couple more shots of the entries in the doll show that I went to two weekends ago.
