As Requested


Becky over at Whosies asked me if I would be interested in testing one of her new patterns. Her things are pretty cute, so of course I said I would. I had planned on following her pattern exactly, but then my four year-old entered the equation. He found me in my sewing room and asked, "Mama, what are you doing?"

"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...

Yes, I'd say your son is destined to become a famour fashion designer - and he'll always come back to you to produce the original of each new idea!

Love the idea of princess bowling, by the way, that made me chuckle :-)

How sweet! I can't let me daughter see this or I'll be making the entire cast of all the Disney princess movies.
