This was my OOAK hand sculpted mini baby doll before being painted and assembled.

I have painted my baby doll using acrylic paints, made a cloth body for her and put the pieces together. I have called her Indi.

I bought this beautiful white cotton dress for Indi. The dress does not have any fastening at the back. To go with the dress I knitted a hat using white cotton yarn.

 I wove a blanket for Indi.

The cotton body I made for Indi is unjointed as she has full limbs. The clay pieces are held by threads (as seen in this photograph) which I did not cut in case any adjustments needed to be made. I used fiberfill to stuff the body. There are no weights or glass beads as this is quite a small doll and they would not be needed. The head, arms and legs can be gently posed. I have made the body soft to allow flexibility during posing. Some pencil marks are still visible from when I was marking the fabric for cutting.

I used Super Sculpey clay (which requires baking) to make Indi. This type of clay has a tendency for "half-moons" to appear after baking. They are the white semicircles visible on the clay pieces.

 Indi is a soft, squishy baby that is pleasant to hold and pose. She is so cuddly.

Edit: I have replaced the cords with fine wire.
