Doll Love!

I have started making some of my Christmas presents early this year. Firstly, because we are expecting our second baby in December (Yay!). I know I'll be super busy as the end of the year draws near so I'd like to get as many done as possible before I start stressing about time limits. Secondly, because I have to send some to Australia and my step sister will be going over there in a few months, so I'd like to send them with her and skip the large postage fees! Lol

I was looking for doll patterns to make for my daughter and found a few that looked good. I was really excited to try one in particular, and once I started it I became OBSESSED with the pattern! Not only does this pattern make an adorable doll but it can also be made into monkeys, bunnies, bears or cats! And it was SO FUN to work up. I seriously want to try all the variations and different colors of each! I'm eager to make the monkey next, I think it would be super cute in hot pink! If you're curious about what I'm talking about then head on over to this amazing blog and check it out.

Here is my finished doll...

There was even a link to a free pattern for the reversible dress. I just whipped it up in about 10 minutes. It's not the best sewing work ever, but I was trying to get it done quickly so I could share this little doll project with you all.
 I am over the moon excited for Little Monkey to open it up at Christmas. She already loves her toy babies so I think she's going to like this too! I'm so happy I have a little girl to make these fun gifts for!


  1. Aw, she is just the cutest!!
    I love her dress and her hair is just perfect.
    Thanks for sharing- I'm so glad you enjoyed making her. Your little one will love her too.
    Have a super week,

    1. Thank you! And thanks again for sharing the pattern. Now that I've found your blog I'm excited to see if there will be any more CALs in the future! :)
