I DO say NO to my children....
just NOT when they ask me to
MAKE something!!!

This little "red girl" found a new home....
Right into my daughter's arms yesterday!

I gave her a pocket because my little one loves the story
"A Pocket for Cordouroy"....
A very sweet children's book about a Bear wanting a pocket!

I had some old striped fabric that Makes great tights
and an old shirt made some fun shoes.

Her hair is an experiment.
I had this ribbon and wondered how it might look.
I think it works just fine.

Amazing what rick rack can do to perk up
some old vintage fabric!

Oh ....Aint' she cute?

Here they are together.
We said goodbye to little miss green on the right today...
But we'll see her on family play dates!
Woo HOo!

Julie in WA asked for a
I just might explain how I did it next time!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Beth....she is a very sweet doll!!

  2. Love the new red doll - and her hair is sweet. Yes, I know the 'pocket' story.

  3. Ahhhhh she looks very lovable.
    And what a great idea to make a dolly to match a little quilt.....I'll have to steal that idea!

    Happy Sewing

  4. What a sweet doll-love her hair!! You're a good Mom :-)

  5. She turned out so cute. So glad you didn't say no. Love the hair. I too would love a tute.

  6. The hair is lovely, and she's a great "huggable" size. Nice work!

  7. Oh Beth a tutorial would be wonderful. I had it on my schedule for tomorrow to experiment but since you've worked it out and don't mind sharing I will happily wait. By the way the ribbons are great. Selina

  8. She's adorable, and looks like she will be well loved!! Whoop whoop!!

  9. She's beautiful. Very huggable. Hugs

  10. These girls are so cute, Beth!

  11. Cute and fun! It feels so good when the things we create are loved!

  12. what a treasure....she will love that doll forever...
    its hard to say no isn't it?

  13. Lucky daughter and grandchild-to-be; what a couple of cute dolls!

  14. Wow, now I have something to look forwards to this week! I think the dolls are so loveable because they are two alike, and the clothes give instant personality! Can't wait to have one of my very own!

  15. great idea for the hair--I always have a struggle with hair for rag dolls

  16. I love your dolly!! I have been wanting to make one, but the hair was scaring me...I love the idea of the ribbons!

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)
