As promised, I'm slowly backtracking through tons of older photos and editing finished project photos to share.
Here is the Anne of Green Gable's inspired doll I made for my son's best friend's 6th birthday:
I used a DADD pattern and was surprised at how easy she was to make. She was made mostly on the embroidery machine, in the hoop. Of course I used red felt for her hair and loved this lace my friend and I found at an estate sale last year, so I had to incorporate it somehow. The body went together smoothly and I am so glad I decided to fight with the lace and make it go down her bodice.
The skirt was easy, peasy. I added the lace along the hem, nothing fancy.
And since the birthday girl is a fan of Anne and loves to read, I was sure to get her the entire collection. I LOVED the Anne books growing up. I have them all around here somewhere... I cannot wait for my Little Critter to get a bit bigger, as we will surely read these stories together before bedtime. Meanwhile, our younger book collection will suffice just fine.
Did you have a favorite book/character growing up?
