This is Bluebell, a vintage doll I dressed for my mum.  Didn't use a pattern, made it up as I went along.  I also made a little dog called Spike for Bluebell from a scrap of knitted up boucle.  I just knitted a swatch then rolled it up, poked it and tucked it into dog-shape and added a little embroidery wool for a black nose and a red tongue.

Bluebell needed a little dog to protect her as her hand has been slightly damaged by a close encounter with my sister's Yorkshire Terrier.

Bluebell's beret is crocheted.  Her underpants are rather oversized, hence the slight bulge at the hip line.
