A handmade doll

for my wonderful 4 year old god daugther…. we celebrated her birthday this week-end, and this is the gift I made for her. I was still sewing the morning of the party since this week had been a rough week in our home with colds and such!

I bought the pattern from Wee Wonderfuls and all the materials used for this project was on hand. My stash is tiny tiny — but it worked out beautifully 🙂 Her hair isn’t as dark as photographed here – and you can’t see the details in these photos – but it turned out adorable!

This is how she was dressed when Talia unrapped her 🙂

This fabric is a shirt I wore a few times – but it never fit me right. I really liked the embrodery on it – and will most likely make something for Elizabeth out of the rest of the fabric — but I have to wait a bit because it has tiny beads and Elizabeth loves taking those things off!!

The paisley is left over from my ring sling ‘accent’ fabric from 2 1/2 years ago! and the green dress is left over from Elizabeth’s halloween costume!

And finally the shoes… see how there’s an error? that’s what happens when you’re STILL sewing minutes before you have to leave for a party!

Oh, and I just wanted to share this — these are the BEST sleeves I’ve EVER sewn!! I’m not a fan of sewing sleeves usually – because it’s rare they turn out beautiful… I was quite impressed with these 🙂
beautiful sleeves!

  1. Oh Annie! Comme tout cela est magnifique! Quels merveilleux cadeaux tu as fait pour cette chanceuse petite fille! Il n’y a rien – vraiment, rien – de plus beau qu’une poupée faite à la main. Tu as fait des petites merveilles comme vêtements. Bravo! J’adore.

  2. You did so well with the outfits! I only managed the dress before I decided that tiny garments might not be for me…

    I decided that I had to check out your blog and leave a note because I am always seeing your comments over at SouleMama (and maybe other blogs that I visit too, I think) and I’ll read them and think “Oh, there is the other Annie.” So I thought I’d see what you are all about 🙂
