For my little dolly!

I have been in love with the Black Apple Dolls created by the #1 Etsy seller, Emily Martin. I found them in November and wanted to make one for Missy MayMay for Christmas. But I was so intimidated by them! I am not the best seamstress. But I recently got a new sewing machine...I love it! It is a Singer and all digital and "fancy". I feel like I really could do anything with it! So I decided to give these cute dolls a try. Missy MayMay totally hearts Tinkerbell and all things Tinkerbell! So I wanted to make one into a Tinkerbell for her. This is my first attempt.

Not to bad...but could use some improvement. This one I made with out enlarging the pattern like it says. So it is a mini Tinkerbell.
After a few more trys, including the cutest set of "Twinies" for my adorable 19 month old twin nieces, I made a larger size doll for Missy MayMay

So now she has a mama one and a baby one!


I must say I have become a bit obsessed with making them! This is what is waiting on my craft table right now....


but they take so little fabric and are so quick that at least I am taking on something small....well small times 10!

Here is a little preview of something else I have been working on this weekend.


This is for my adorable nephew, Arbor. He recently got a new puppy, Oscar, and this print reminded me of him! I am even making a matching doll to go with it....yea I am obsessed!

Oh my gosh -- you did a wonderful job on those dolls. They are absolutely precious! Was your sewing machine hard to learn how to use?
