It's a first.
First doll, I've made.
A friend, Deanne, was making a ballerina from Stitched in Time.
Uh hello! I want to make one too.
(and so did Nicol, but she cut out 8 of them...8!
Hey Nicol, how's it going?)
Note: Didn't know we were showing presents on the blog before the big day (or I could have shown you this!) I was not expecting Des to give me a hexagon caddy.
Thank you! It's much appreciated!
I loved every step of making the doll until I got to the hair. I was really whining at Deanne. My yarn choice was thick & it took a lot of yanking & a latex glove to pull that hair through. There's some stuffing or is it grey hair peeking out?
Wanted her to look like the cover girl --
found a vintage pillowcase on eBay & it was almost identical!
I did the arms & legs a little different. I inserted them into the seams & seamed the bottom of the hands & feet. Seems a little more durable.
Well...I had to have one too.
More sewing & tugging.
But worth it!
Now the girls want one...
and Harry (my 4 year old). ?
