Today I'm excited to have my friend Lisa here to share her Create H.O.P.E. Designs sewing! Take it away Lisa!
Thank you, Kristy, for having me as a part of this wonderful Create H.O.P.E. sew along! I was super excited when Kristy asked me if I would like to review the Avivi Doll Carrier pattern (by Yellow Hibiscus). My little girl has been asking me for a carrier for her baby for a while now. (Interestingly, her doll's name is baby Hope. :) ) When she started asking me, I asked Kristy for a good option, since I knew she would have one, and the first thing she said was the Avivi Doll Carrier. I rushed off and bought it within five minutes. Unfortunately, it took me a couple months to be able to make it. And let me just say, my baby girl was tickled when she woke up to discover her doll in it!
You may not notice, but this picture has my mistake. The first time I cut out the main body of the carrier, I did so without having the pattern pieces fully constructed. I forgot to tape the lower strip on which completes the length of the piece. After I took this picture I had to re-cut my fabric to have them the proper size. Apart from that mistake, which was not at all due to the pattern, I really enjoyed making this project and using this pattern. Here is my finished carrier:
And here is the carrier on my little model!
And I could not resist sharing this gratuitous cuteness! She is a happy little dolly mommy! :)
I would say it was a project success! :)
I definitely recommend this pattern to anyone looking to make a doll carrier for a special little girl in their life.
Thanks again Kristy for letting me share some time on your blog.
THANK YOU LISA!!! :) Your carrier and your precious model are absolutely ADORABLE!!!
