What A Doll Can Do

Last night I had my knitting (and now sewing!) buddy over. Miss O and I had a crafting marathon! First we finished up two knitting projects that she had going - a knitted owl and a little knitted purse (forgot to take a photo of them - shoot!). Then I showed her these sweet dolls from my new favorite The Black Apple. She fell in love with them as did I and next thing I knew I was cutting out pattern pieces and she was picking out fabric. Three hours later we had this sweet little dolly…


She named her Mitsy. She was so excited and happy and let me tell ya so was I. I really want to make more! (go to The Black Apple and click on the label DOLLS and see all the cuties she's made. Very sweet!)

I'm so glad I had my time with little Miss O. It really cheered me up and got me out of a minnie slump. It's amazing what crafting can do. Working with my hands and letting my creativity run can do wonders for the soul.

*Find the pattern and a video instruction from The Black Apple's appearance on Martha here. Now go make some dolls!*

So, so sweet!

[You've just inspired me to sew mine - cut out last month!]

Oh now I really really wish I could sew. It's great having crafty buddies over though.

I love the doll! I want to learn how to sew...I keep telling my mom to teach me! That is funny that Miss O named her Mitsy...where did that come from :-)

How sweet!! It's fun getting to spend one on one time with little ones, isn't it? :) Great fabric combo, btw!

I have that pattern bookmarked, and even printed up the pattern, but haven't started yet. Yours came out so cute!
