    It’s OK, it wasn’t urgent. Thanks for the info. I’ll pass it along.
    Something I’m wanting to know for myself is whether arms and legs from Happy Kidz would work on a Hannah body. I’m thinking that body style might work better for a boy conversion. I really have to have the articulated limbs for the kind of stuff I do.

    Sorry for late reply, Peggy. Only just seen this. Yes, you have to remove all the hair. I usually cut it as short as I can with sharp scissors and finish it off with an old beard trimmer of DH haha! To be honest, I hate removing the hair. It is really stressful. I don’t think I will be rewigging any more in a hurry!! It was an experience though!

    Pam, someone on FB was asking if you have to remove all the hair before adding a wig.

    Love all the furniture, Peggy, and good to see Dolly too.

    You have justifiably called me out. The bed I made went to Daphne for her dolls. My poor girls sit in chairs or on windowsills or bookcases all night. Poor things can’t ever close their eyes.

    Peggy, the bed that stores clothes is a good idea – but how many ‘beds’ do you have? I can see that your girls would have lots of clothes – do they have to share beds? Or do they squabble about whose turn it is to sleep in the bed!

    The chair is Simplicity 8641. It was a real job to make. Good pattern, though. (This probably should go in accessories.)

    That’s a great idea Peggy! And I love the chair in the background!

    Thanks for the reminder about the patterns and projects thread. When I finish the bathing suit, I’ll post it there with a description of what I did.

    A plastic box needn’t be boring. Just ask Dolly. Plastic box the right size, dust ruffle, mattress, pillow, sheets, blanket and quilt. All she needs is a headboard. Her clothes are stored inside the bed.

    You are very welcome, Ginny. Lovely to have you on the forum, so feel free to ask any questions you need 🙂 sorry for the late reply but I was busy yesterday and forgot to visit this thread/discussion.
    I think we should try and remember to post one photo in the patterns and project pages… it is handy for a quick reference rather than read through all the chat on the sewing thread haha!
    The advantage of plastic boxes – although a bit boring – is that the clothes keep dust free. I have been collecting a while and some of my clothes are quite old. I never seem to forget what I have though… I do forget other things but seem to have no trouble remembering anything doll related 🙂
