I cut a circle of beige felt about 1 inch in diameter for the face of the doll. You can use the cap of a water bottle as a template. I used E6000 adhesive to attach the face, hair, and other details.
For the eyes I attached the tips of 2 pins to the felt.
To create the look of blushing cheeks I colored with a fine tipped marker onto a cotton swab and dabbed it just under the eyes.
