She loves her dollies....always has. For a long time, she had been asking me to make her one. I made her sister a stuffed owl but she wanted a doll.
So here is what I came up with:
This would be a great gift for a little one and you can leave off the button in the flower to make it even more safe for small children. I have a few different pins on my Sewing board on Pinterest that helped me with designing her and I had to do a Google search to find a pattern that I could work with. Here is the tutorial from Gingermelon that I ultimately used to make her: TUTORIAL
I am still not sure if I like her skirt completely but Emma likes it so it stays. The hair is made from felt, with some wool in it, that I purchased from Joann Fabrics and I hand painted her face after using a pencil to draw it on. On my next doll, I want to add little shoes. Did I mention that softies, like her, were the first things that I ever sewed? It actually was a rabbit with a dress that I made in about the seventh grade. And I still love to sew them.
