My Creative Space


I've been making some dolls for a lovely fellow blogger/crafter this week!

The outfits are made from her daughters gorgeous baby clothes. There is a pocket opening in the back of this doll, made from the Bonds 'easysuit' crossover...





Made from two baby outfits again, the back is stripey...


The fabric for this dress is made from part of the great-grandmother's ballgown, that she used to wear when she was younger. The dress was used for dress ups for the different generations of the family, and also made into various things along the way. So now its being used for the great-granddaughters doll, as well as one of her necklaces she used to wear. I think this is one of the most sentimental dolls I have made!!


Hope everyones having a crafty day indoors today - its unbelievably windy outside here!!x

Jennie they really are stunning. Such an incredibly special gift to give someone, I just love the idea of using their very own clothes for the dolls, your beautiful works is always amazing!

Love them Jennie. Lots of lovely pink. It's wonderful how you work with the clothes to make them totally individual. I am sure they will be adored by their new Mummys.
