Topsy Turvy doll






I had a friend as a child who had a topsy turvy doll, the lovely doll was very popular and I was very jealous! I decided to design one and make her for one of my girls (the one who loves dolls!)  for Christmas. It was tricky figuring out the initial design, but with a bit of good old "winging it" she turned out fine and dandy. Do you know how they work? They're attached in the middle (no legs) with the long dress covering one head so you only see the opposite head. Turn the doll and skirt over (upside down) to reveal the other doll! I love them, what do you think?

Wonderful! I had a Little red riding good doll when I was knee-high, one end was granny, with the wolf on the back of her head, and the other was Little red!

You've done a great job - hurray for winging it!
