Party Doll

Party Doll

Shopping for toys is difficult during the Christmas season - I certainly don't want to go there. People will run over you. So, on the occasion of my great-niece's first birthday, I made this fun, silly, cute, simple little rag doll for her. I found the basic design online. I changed it. (come on now, are you really surprised?) Best of all I had help. Her other "uncle", Dave, stuffed the arms, and legs, then stuffed the body and head. I did the sewing and painted the face.

I used a black corded velveteen for the back of her head - Ha! no hair to sew on with that. Then I just painted the seam and around her face with some black "hair" with curls on the ends.

I hope she makes a little girl very happy. I know that little girl makes me very happy.

Oh my goodness. That is one cute doll! Nice work Gene!!

I saw you posted on the site about the "follow this blog". I will add another way to follow. Right now there is one right under "Friendly People" and above the three people who are Followers. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!
