Dolly & Blanky
So this was not my “best year” for handmade gifts. I made only one. I’m not sure how I feel about that now, since part of Christmas to me is making handmade gifts… but circumstances did not work out this year for it.
I just wanted to share with you what I DID make this year… This cute little dolly for a even cuter 18 mo. old girl on my list.
And since no dolly is complete with out her own blanky I made her a quick little quilt to go with it.
The doll is a pattern from the Wee Wonderfuls book. (which I highly recommend…)
The quilt is my own design…. well actually not much of a design, I guess you would call it impromptu quilting. I just took the scraps left over from the doll and a fat quarter and started sewing until I found something that I liked & was the right size.
The doll was the first stuffed item that I’ve made since high school!! She was easy to make and I had alot of fun picking out her clothes *grin*… I may have to start playing around with making some more next year!
Don’t forget you have until 5pm PST today to enter the HomeGoods $50 gift card giveaway here!!
