I am so thrilled that Elizabeth is finished & completed!!
WOO HOO!!!Many many photos I took while completing Elizabeth pincushion that I would like to share with you. When those of you, who are stitching this doll project, reach the point of finishing I would love to know or see if you used some different techniques while sewing her. First......

Photos of completing Elizabeth .......
Then I studied the very small photo in the magazine and learned that they folded all the way down leaving about 4 to 6 threads from the top of the side borders.
I pinned and ironed. I did push my pins up so I would not melt the tops ( I have done this before).
Perfect! Just like the photo of the doll in the magazine.
Views of when I placed the skirt on the doll and adjusted it.
Making the scissor pocket. I did not glue the ecru felt for the inside of the pocket I stitched it.
