Yes, if you guessed "dolls" that's exactly what we have been working on! (I thought those "doll needles" were at least a suggestive clue!) ;)
Ever since I posted about the Bit of Whimsy free plushie patterns my girls have been anxiously awaiting the chance to make their very own Mae doll. So, we introduce to you the ABC Sister Dolls...
Sister A chose playful dots & stripes to match her fun personality! She also chose a lighter hair color to match her own, and since she wears glasses, we also stitched a pair on her doll as well. Very cute!
Sister B is just a babe, so I got to make hers. :) I chose fabric I have enough of to make her a matching dress....hopefully!
Sister C being the lovely, girly girl that she is went with this delicate floral print and pastel dot fabric and even added a little ribbon trim to give it some extra fluff. She also gave her the same beautiful blue eyes that she has.
Sister C is at that stage of knowing pretty much all there is to know in life, so she had the privilege of doing almost every step twice...once her way and once the right way. :) Overall, a very good learning experience for my budding seamstress. Her finished doll was just perfect!
The "ABC" Sister Dolls!
A long but successful Family Sewing project, and one more checked off the list! (oh boy! is my sewing room upside down! Good thing daddy's off work tomorrow!) :)
