So here I am thinking I want to make one of those big headed skinny armed dolls for Gigi again. The kind that are all over Pinterest and that I bought a kit for a few years back. There are eight dollar downloadable patterns to make similar dolls……
“What the hell, this looks like a cinch to make. I’ll just make my own pattern!” And I’ll even sew her a twee Peter Pan collar!
Apparently making an attractive giant headed long skinny limbed doll as not as easy as thought. Those pigtails look like goat ears!But the important thing was I shared some quality time with my girl making it.Even my process shots look weird. Ha! Well, I just thought I’d post this to show you can’t win ’em all. however, this project was made entirely with my stch. No new materials were bought. So far, I’m making good on my buy no new fabrics pledge.
Somehow Gigi has conveniently lost this doll since I made it. We can’t find her anywhere . Hmmm……hence no cute blog photos of her cuddling with her dolly.
In other news, I had a blast with my two oldest, (in time known, not age!) and best friends and their daughters. We went on a mom daughter camp out at Jalama beach this week. I highly recommend a mom/ kid camp-out if you’ve never tried it. Cooking around the campfire, swimming in the ocean, lighting gasoline stoves without blowing yourself up, and pitching tents…. real fun! Just pack plenty of vodka to get through it.
