Native Baby doll Redo

My friend Patty collects Native American Baby dolls. We went to a local trade days event and she found a darling boy baby doll. The only trouble is he was dressed in colors that did not match the rest of her Southwestern themed collection, but she loved his face and wig. He wasn't very expensive and I offered to make him a new costume.

I cut apart his original clothes as pattern pieces for the new one. I chose a soft grayish green ultra-suede and found a thrift store skirt that was a nice coordinating rusty colored ultra-suede. I trimmed him with fake fur, feathers and  embroidered jacquard trims. I also added some beaded and hand stitched elements. He was fun to make.

THis baby doll has a music box in it's belly that sings a horrid version of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, only one stanza over and over, truly awful
