I was checking out Alison’s blog the other day and I saw these cute little dolls she had made to go along with her tea set (designed by Annie Modesitt, my hero). I tried to find the pattern on Interweave Knits, but apparently that issue is no longer available so I winged it and made my own doll. I think she turned out pretty good. All I have to do is add some hair and a face and she’ll be done! I think I’ll run to Joann’s to pick up some embroidery floss for her hair and size 7 needles so I can swatch DD’s sweater. I think my doll should have some funky hair….I’m thinkin’ blue and black, maybe a little purple too? I would totally dye my hair some weird color if I didn’t think I would look like an idiot so I’ll live vicariously through my doll. Here are a few other dolls: one on Froggy’s site; five on Miss Finch’s blog: Melanie’s, Megan’s, Mary Sunshine’s, and her daughters’. Back to DD’s sweater……I started swatching by making a miniature version of the sweater but my needle broke…..well, it actually broke again. I originally broke said needle by kneeling on it (by accident) and glued it back together. It didn’t work. Oh well, I need to be more careful
Have a great day!
