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 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!!
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 🙂
