I liked her Milk, Sugar and Flower collection very much and was so curious on how she did it and wanted to know her more.
Today is my second time that I take a part in her new line showcase, Little Dolly for Penny Rose Fabrics.
Am I excited? Heck, yeah! It’s about DOLLS! Don’t forget that I am a mother of three girls who grew up with handmade dolls!
When I received Elea’s sweet new fabrics, I already planned to draw Claire and her best friend’s doll play with threads.
I pretended I was doing something else but I actually was spying on them as they played and tried to remember their leg positions and their doll play setting.
To be honest, my youngest daughter, Claire in the yellow dress and nicely combed pig tails is the only lie. In real life, her long hair is as hard to keep neat as it would be with Rapunzel.
“Mommy, why do you make me new doll?”
“Because I want to give you new doll.”
She was so excited, it felt like Christmas in summer to her, as I usually make her a doll as a Christmas gift.
She ordered me to put a pair of glasses and little freckles to look like her older sister.
Her name is Ally and she is her new best friend.
You know, My 7 year old gets a new best friend every time a new doll gets sewn up.
This Doll dress was inspired by Elea’s upcoming book, Dolly.
If you never made a cloth doll and want to learn how to, this book will tell you how to start.
Claire even picked underwear too. I think it was the perfect choice.
And lastly, this play mat is her new favorite blanket. And mine too!
These fabrics are only few out of many from the fabric collection. Check out Little Dolly collections for more.
I hope you enjoyed my Little Dolly story and don’t miss other projects by awesome makers!
