Black Apple-esque Doll

I made this back in February for a little niece of Enrique's. The design evolved from the Black Apple Doll pattern on Martha Stewart's website.

I've tried making a number of variations of this doll and I consistently make the legs and/or arms too skinny, which makes them really hard to work with. This one turned out pretty good though, faring much better than some (there is a doll parts graveyard on my shelf for the ones that weren't so lucky). I did a simple embroidered face and added a few fun details, like functional pockets, which I thought a little girl would appreciate. I would like to get a hold of some wool felt at some point, for projects like this (I used synthetic here because it was all I could find at the craft store).
