Assembling :

First, we’ll assemble the head

Place the hair in such a way that last st of hair is one stitch away from the back of the head (see pic below). Sew the hair to the head when you are satisfied with the placement at front.

Place the head band so that it aligns with R11 of hair at the front and sew.

Place the ribbons over the head band and stitch them. Head pins comes in handy to keep the ribbons in place.

Sew the earrings on either side of the head.

Embroider the mouth using black embroidery thread.

Insert the waist belt through the top of the body and sew it just above the skirt.

Attach the head to the body.

For the blouse design, embroider a half square shape using lavender colour yarn.

Finally attach the arms to the body just below the head.

And your mexican doll is now done!
