"I'm making a doll." I answered.
"For meeeeeee?" he asked.
"It can be for you," I said, "If you like it." He looked at the photo printed on the pattern.
"Mama, I would really like a Cinderella doll. She would look beeeee - u - tea - full with blond hair, a blue dress, and a crown I can take off." Well, what could I say to that?
So I'd like you to meet Cinderella. Everything I used came from my stash: felt, fabric, ribbon, lace, etc. The lace is amazing! A few years ago a friend of mine came to visit with a couple of her friends who were interior decorators. They brought my a bunch of old wallpaper sample books and several little bolts of that vintage lacy stuff. It has been quite handy to have around for little projects like this.
I love this doll pattern. She stands up beautifully. I might have to make a "Bowling for Princesses" game next. Report cards come out soon so I'll have to see how the time goes...
