My First Dolly

Fabric doll

I have been having an I’m-so-dang-proud-of-myself moment since I finished Jovie’s dolly. One of her Christmas present from me and one of her big wish on her list. It took me almost six hours to complete this! I think I could have gotten it done in four hours if my sewing machine wasn’t so temperamental. Somebody who’s used to sewing can probably whip it up in two hours!

I used this pattern and tutorial to get this doll and after following everything, I got Anabelle. Yes, I think that’s what I shall name her!

Check out the little collar. So cute! The little mouth I hand stitched and the eyes were sewn in (although stitching it would have been tidier — I am not good with the machine).

I don’t have a hemming machine and so I just zig-zagged the bottom of the dress.

And little red shoes. LOVE the little red shoes! You can see a bit of white thread on the left foot but oh well. It’s hand made and I am not a sewing expert. You should see the inside of this doll. YIKES!!

I showed M the dolly and she was completely smittened by it. She wanted one too — or anything that I make especially for her. Ahhh, love that my girls like the stuff I make {::SMILES}.

That’s all I want to share today. The photos are kind of crap. It’s already getting dark and I had some Red Cross volunteer event earlier today.
