This past weekend, we shared a special milestone. My niece celebrated her first birthday. I made her this little black apple doll. She enjoys her dollies and putting them to sleep in their beds. This is a easy sewing project . You can personalize the doll in so many ways. My girls have asked for their own dolls. Emily Martin has a picture book being released in October, so I am thinking ahead to making a couple of dolls for them as well as the book for Christmas.
and here she is in her cradle.
Sewing notes: I increased the pattern by 150% and added a 1 cm cutting allowance; the eyes and mouth are embroidered, 6 strands of floss, poly fill stuffing; hair felt; face and arms white canvas} The quilt is one block of scrappy trip around the world; Lily helped with the pillow and binding; felt apple barrette from Daiso}
Happy crafting! It is supposed to reach double digits in these parts today. We will be doing a happy dance!
