I know it doesn't seem like it but I really have been sewing! I have several projects in the not sure where are going, but can't show pile.
I got tired of them for a bit, I hate not being able to show things here! My blog is terribly neglected, yet it is the heart of my online quilting. So I really am trying to remember to get back here. I have lots to show and tell. I'm just not always able to, especially since my health hasn't been very good lately.
But enough whining.
Little Bit received TWO Maplelea dolls for Christmas, which are the Canadian version of the American Girl Doll. She has been obsessed with them since she received a catalogue with one of her kid's magazine subscriptions. Which still p's me off, but that's a rant for later.
Long and short is she had to get at least one for Christmas or things would have been very unpleasant around here. And before you think I'm exagerating or spoiling her, even my mother agreed that her fixation on them was extreme enough that it warranted at least one of these $100 dolls. And as much as grandma loves to spoil her, she's not one to have EVER bought such an expensive play doll.
Ok so not so short, continuing, Little Bit is in LOVE with them, especially the brunette, Taryn, who goes with her everywhere.
But as I really did want something else to work on I found a pattern, pulled some stash fabrics and made these up!
I'm really happy with how they turned out. They are far from perfect, but I learned a lot, Little Bit is thrilled with them, and I think I may have enough confidence to try something more elaborate later on, like Mod Kid's Naomi pattern.
Oh and did I mention they apparently need quilts now?
