I Almost Forgot.....

For Christmas this year i made the nieces dolls, 
and i almost forgot to tell you all.

The dolls were tailored to each girl....
the clothes were chosen from their favorite color....
the hair matches the hair color of each niece.....
so without further adue here they are:

For Kamille
 She loves purple.....took me forever to find the right kind of purple to use, 
but after searching through my whole fabric stash i finally found it.....
if she didn't love i was going to keep it for myself!


For Ayla
I wasn't quite sure what her favorite color was, 
but she's 4 years old and what 4 y/o girl doesn't like pink...
am i right! But i have to be honest, i originally made her for Kamille, 
but after considering the the colors for a awhile, 
i just wasn't satisfied about them and decided they were more pink than purple

For Hailey
Yes people, my niece has fire red hair, 
which is actually a very dark orange-red color.....
and to top it off she's about as 'tom-boy' as you can get....
she must take after me, because i was a big tom boy growing up! 
And Hailey's favorite color just so happens to be blue, 
which goes great with orange.


Aren't the dollies lovely??

I used Dahlia the Doll pattern for Melly & Me
When first opened the pattern I about freaked out...
8 pages of instructions...
i thought i was going to die...what did i get myself into. 
But once you start working at the dolls, 
it starts coming together very quickly!

So cute! I love the purple hair. I made this pattern before and I had the same reaction. There are just so many...words!

(HA! My word verification is Melly!)

Your dolls are so adorable! Did you use a pattern or are they your own design? I love the multicoloured hair - back in the day when I was making rag dolls for my kids I would never have thought of doing something like that. How we've grown in creativity - in all areas of life!
