Belated Birthday Gift...

So my best friend's daughter has been asking me for a doll (With purple!) since her birthday. So many things have come in the way of free crafting these days. We moved earlier this year and I kept telling myself that I'll get around to it as soon as the dust settles. During the summer I started sewing again when Ella was finally sleeping through the night but I haven't really been consistent. My Internet went out the other night and I decided to take some time and fire it up again. Here we have "Bella" as Sarah named her. Having read the Twilight series I'm quite pleased with her choice of name. Maybe I'll make her an Edward. ;)


Just a simple and really fast pattern. I think start to finish it took me about an hour. I drafted out a doll pattern on paper, traced it on some fabric, pieced it together and sewed. Stuffed and wove in some hair. Embroidered the eyes and painted on the mouth, blush and eyebrows. Sarah was so thrilled and had to play with her hair.


On another note I'm excited to start teaching knitting classes at
A. C. Moore this Wednesday. There are youth and adult beginner as well as intermediate classes and workshops during the month of November. During December in addition there will also be a 2-part Intro to Sock Knitting class that I will also be teaching. I've taught knitting to friends and family for many years now. It's a great feeling to be able to share this craft with others.
