New to the forum and just saw this. Not sure exactly what you need to know. The type of dolls I make are soft sculptured dolls. i.e they have sculpted faces, fingers, toes, breasts, etc. I do know that working with felt can be a tad frustrating if you are stuffing it tightly, as it has a tendency to stretch a bit and then tear. Let me know what you need help with, and perhaps I can give you some pointers.
Have a great day
