This doll took me forever to make but was worth all the effort. My lovely friend Laura gave me the wool to stuff her with. I used the Little Amigo pattern in Growing Up Sew Liberated. It was easy to follow and came out nice, so I'm happy with the result. I'm hoping to make another doll sometime, although Olivia has way too many dolls already, at three years of age! Her birthday was last week and she named this doll Emily Elizabeth. She seems to enjoy her! If you click through there are a few more photos of her in my Flickr account.
My niece turned 14 last week and I made her a zip pouch with some of my favorite fabrics. She and I have the same favorite color. I used Lecien Flower Sugar 2015 for this pouch and put a little bead or two on the zipper. I stuffed it with candy for her and mailed it off.
I have a great project in the works involving a Little Darling but it has unfortunately gotten bumped to the bottom of my priorities (sadly) for a few weeks because I have been playing catch up on a lot of other things! Hopefully I will get to work on it this week. Today I built a whole swing set for my daughter, all by myself, so I'm proud I got it accomplished and she loves it so it was worth it!
