My week has been consumed with stolen moments, to finish making this doll in time for Zoe's first birthday yesterday. I made it in time - just.
I've never made a doll before, it was fun trying some thing new.
I enjoyed choosing all the different fabrics. I think I am addicted to fabric.
Some lessons were learnt. Such as, 4.30pm any day of the week is the children's witching hour, don't even attempt to embroider a dolls face. You may forget to read the instructions properly, and embroider her a brown mouth instead of a red one. I ran out of energy to start again, I just went over the brown with some red, a one year old will never notice.
The skirt is reversible, so she already has a different outfit in her wardrobe.
I may call her Dotty - do you think this name suits her? I can't call her Ruby Lou like the pattern as I have a niece called Ruby, it could get a little confusing for everyone.
Here she is, almost nudey-rudey, with no skirt on.
She turned out alright, methinks. Not sure if Dotty will survive a one year old, am I mean not letting Zoe play (chew) with it? Or should I just relax and let her do as she will, it is her dolly after all.
Lots more lovely creative spaces over here.
Have a lovely day peeps, Cat
