I had so much fun making these dolls. I have two little granddaughters and I’m gonna give these to them on Easter. It’s one of those things that can eventually become an heirloom.
I’ve always loved dolls and collected them for a while. This little doll is so sweet. I just love her little face and the beautiful curls. I know there are a lot of little girls (and big gals) who would love to have one just like her.
I’ve been toying with the idea of taking some of these to the Children’s Hospital. I will need to make a bunch of them, so I’ve talked to some friends and we’re thinking about getting together to make some of these up! It’s always more fun making things with friends!
I plan to help my granddaughters sew some clothes as an educational experience, since they always see me sewing and are very interested. Making the clothes are so much fun…it’s my favorite part of making these dolls. My granddaughters will have to have more than one outfit for their new dolls!
You can make your own character if you like. Use different colors of fabric for different nationalities. You can even make one from a bright color with contrasting woolen hair.
Watch how Poupees de chiffon makes this beautiful doll in her step by step tutorial so you can get busy making one for some lucky little girl too!
