With Phil's help we finished the rag dolls last night! I sewed the dresses and he helped make and stitch the doll wigs while we watched The Mentalist last night. He's the best. And I'm so proud with how they turned out!
A bit about the dolls:
The dolls and dresses were made with my own pattern. All the dresses are made from vintage linens. The hair is a mixture of handspun and commercial yarn. The faces are left blank to allow more room for the imagination! This way the dolls can be happy, sad, sleeping, or awake!
I love them. I hope our little nieces like them too. (I always get nervous when I give away handmade gifts!)
