Little Dolls

I have enjoyed creating a little doll inspired by the "Little House" books for a friend's daughter. These were my all time favorite stories as a girl, and I still enjoy these stories as an adult. As I started to work on these, by imagination when a little wild, and the clothing I sewed looks a little more 'Dickenson' then Home on the Prairie. Nevertheless, I am pleased with them and feel my sewing skills are starting to improve a little. Sewing clothing for 5 inch dolls is a bit of challenge. Its seemed my entire fabric stash had prints that were too large and I found out that red is a difficult color to match. I still have quite a bit of handwork left on the clothing, and would like to paint a box for the 'spare' doll to put her clothing in.. Santa might need an extra gift!
