Teaspoon Lady

The Teaspoon Lady pattern is from Tone Finnanger's book "Tilda's Fairy Tale Wonderland".  I have two suggestions when making this doll.  When I was stuffing the doll I found it difficult to keep the stuffing in the head.  I took the stitch you see at the neck.  After the doll is finished I snipped this stitch.  On the doll bottom the original instructions direct one to pull the fabric and leave the stuffing exposed, reasoning that the doll is going to be glued into a teacup.  I made a little yo-yo and attached it to the bottom of the dolls.
