First doll for baby

Doll made by Jenny Stacy for her grandaughter
I gave Juno this doll yesterday and she promptly threw it over her shoulder. Throwing is the new game. She hasn't time for her doll right now. But I like to think she'll enjoy discovering it later.

 Her mother liked smoothing a piece of satin so this doll has a satin ribbon loop. There are pompoms to twiddle and velvet armbands to feel. The doll has a hand-knitted top with suffolk puff sewn on for more texture and her skirt is made of soft brushed cotton. I enjoyed making her and I might make a few more 'comfort dolls' for the shop.
