When we were preparing for our spring shows we decided this fabric would make great skirts and dresses for our dolls. I thought I'd share a few of the dolls we've since created.
Both dolls belong to our Big Sister Collection:
Big Sisters are very sophisticated. They love to read, ride bikes and help Mom and Dad around the house. Great friends for big-kid girls (aged 3 and up), these special cuties love to tell stories, dance, and drink tea. Plus, they are especially great at keeping secrets and picking out their own clothes.
Turns out the green fabric was awesome for embroidery. We had the doll in the green dress completed for a long while but I was eager to do some embroidery accents for her dress. Yesterday I finally got my inspiration...
What do you think? She's so beautiful - I couldn't put her into the storage box with the other dolls! She's been sitting on top of my entertainment centre since she was finished and I can't take my eyes off of her. The flowers really pop against the green and the effect of the three colours used for the petals is quite pleasing - especially when viewed from a short distance.
The first doll has been listed in our shop and the second doll will be listed once I'm finished admiring her. We have several Big Sister dolls listed in the shop - the concept of the dolls 'dressing themselves' offers up so much freedom and creativity - they are very fun to make!
Thanks for stopping by!
