Fold paper in half.

Step 3: Add Facial Features

First draw the head with pencil, then trace over it with a pen.
Then, draw the eyes, a nose, and a mouth using the same technique as for the head.
Why don't you add hair, or jewelry? Feel free to experiment with different looks and accessories!

Step 4: Add Clothing!

Draw a diagonal line starting from the middle of the neck, going all the way to the side.
Add sleeves, and hands.
I added a bunny, but you can add anything you want. For example, for one of my dolls, I put an orchid in her hands, and for my Christmas version, I put a gift in her hands.

Step 5: Color!!!
