Step 1: Supplies

You need:
Paper, Pen, Pencil, Crayons, Eraser, and Scissors.

Step 2: Make the Doll Shape

Fold paper in half.
On creased side, draw a half circle, and a half oval underneath.
Cut along lines.
If you want, you can modify the body shape.

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!!!

Color her face, hands, and dress.
If you want, you can draw a pattern on the dress!

Step 6: Add Details

Add color to her cheeks, and her dress!
Please post pictures of the dolls you made in the comments! :)
Don't forget to name her!!!
