Knot Doll

This is a knot doll, or as some call it, a "blankie" doll.  This is the best suited doll for a baby's first doll.  I made this one from cotton flannel but I now use wool sweaters which have been felted in the washing machine.  Wool is the only fiber that naturally resists flame.  Wool is also a bit easier to sew with as it has some give (stretch) to it.
