blocking/starching

I have made 2 of these. They are adorable. I tried wetting the snowflake portion of the doll and pinning it blocked on a snowflake grid. It did not stay. As there were no instructions that we needed to block it or starch it, i thought that would be enough. I am now going to have to add some starch to the water and try it again. My two 3yr-olds do not like it with a crumpled snowflake.

But they are simply adorable. I think i will use the basic pattern and do a flower instead of a snowflake. It is a good instruction for a basic ami, too, if you wanted to alter it in other ways.
