I joined a group called Cloth and Clay Dolls - it is a ning site for people who enjoy making dolls. The woman who runs the group you might know as Gritty Jane. Her real name is Jane DesRosier.
She is amazing and so talented. The group costs just $10 a year so I decided to give it a try. There are some tutorials listed within the group and one was for the Gritty Jane doll. Here is a picture of the original one that she makes in the tutorial.
