This year I didn't have many plans for making Christmas gifts, but I really wanted to do something. Thanks to a suggestion from my friend, Stephanie. I bought the book, Wee Wonderfuls, and LOVED it.
I picked out three projects - one that I thought would fit each of my girls - and got sewing.
I was happy to find that they weren't too much work. I finished in about 4 days and I was just sewing at naps and night time. I varied the patterns a little bit to my own liking and I think they turned out great for my first doll making projects.
CK's ribbon haired doll:
L's topsy turvey doll (she was the most time intensive because of a lot of hand sewing):
And C's Ellie bag (I added a ribbon bow to the back):
By far my favorite gifts to give the girls....and they actually like them.
Oh! and the best part, I just used extra fabric/supplies I already had so they were priced just right.
