A new interest

Dolls!  Antique cloth dolls to be precise :)
 Look at all those Mother Teresa stamps! :)
This pattern called Lottie first appeared in an Australian magazine called Homespun.  After a lapse of a certain time period Gail Wilson is now selling them.
This is the Feedsack Doll, the kit is soooo comprehensive.  I need to read the instructions thoroughly.  I am excited and at the same time quite overwhelmed.  I'll take this slowly.  Can't rush the making of a doll! :)
I'm cutting out another blouse pattern on practice fabric.  This time is a free pattern by Burda Style.  It's called Danielle and it's supposed to be a dress but I am shortening it to a blouse.  The instructions are not as detailed as Carla's, I hope I'll manage.


  1. I have to remove your from my daily blog read. You are introducing too many different crafts. (anyway thanks to pointing to carla and another freebie pattern)

  2. Oh my goodness....I absolutely LOVE that doll kit!!! Congrats on your first official doll - I must see it some time soon! The colours of the kit (for everything sent) is so lovely. Envy you!!!!!

    Wow, now that's a kit.
    MW is starting to sound like she might also press "add to cart!"

  4. Can't deny the fact that IT IS INDEED A GORGEOUS KIT!! Ooooh! can't wait to see it materialized.
    Enjoy BJ.

    Hi Barbara, This is Karen (Karen in IL.) I was just enjoying your blog and noticed that you are going to make the same Gail Wilson doll I am starting. I'm going to read over the directions tonight and start on her tomorrow. Good luck with yours and wish me luck with mine. :o)
