If you love to make soft toys and dolls in particular, then I am sure you are familiar with the fabulous Hillary Lang of Wee Wonderfuls. I have been a long time visitor to her blog so I was ecstatic when I saw that she was publishing her own book of dolls to make. I immediately pre-ordered it from Amazon and it arrived last week. It is fabulous! Every project inside is cuter than the last and the directions are clear and easy to understand. The patterns are terrific without any enlargement needed...I love it when I don't have to run to the copy store to enlarge a pattern.
Today is my mom's birthday and wanted to make her a doll. I chose to create the 'Tag-a-long' doll in the book. And here she is...Lily.
She was so fun to make. I always love how dolls/soft toys come to life when you add the facial features and a little stuffing. We visited Grandma today and she loved Lily. 72 isn't too old for a homemade doll, right? Good thing, my mom doesn't think so!
Next on the agenda is a doll for Jackson. Hillary has a pattern in the book for a boy doll named, Eddie (you can see him on the front cover). I love that she included boy dolls.
