Dolls, Dolls and More Dolls ... And an Easter Give-Away

Well another week flew by.  I hope everyone had a great weekend, it was very warm here, in the mid 80's, 90's probably on its soon.  We didn't do much,  my son had dental bone grafts done on Friday, he is getting ready for implants, so we stayed home and I did my favorite thing to do---SEW.      I am realizing that I don't have much for my show, just one pitiful bin, so I need to do the make one for sale and one for the show.  So I cut out about 10 dolls and this is what I started out with .... a whole bunch of naked bodies
and this is what I ended up with, several were for orders, some for ETSY and some for my show in May or November. I actually made a couple of Christmas ornies too!  Because you know "it will be here before you know it"
I found these slinky dog candy containers in Wal-mart and if you cut the plastic away, you end up with a little slinky dog.   So now he is Annie's toy.

 Another one using the same fabric above, I found this at Wal-Mart, loving the polka-dots.  My favorite pattern to use, Sweet Meadows Farm.

These were a special order, I used a Polka Dot pigs doll body pattern for this, a pinkeep on a small wide mouth jar.  These are fun to make

 This Annie is about 26 inches tall.  I found the Raggedy Ann material at Hobby Lobby and couldn't wait to use it.  Since the print is large, I had to make a large doll, this is a Raggedy SMiles pattern. I may add a small Raggedy Ann to her hand or something else to go with her.
 These were a special order from a friend/customer of mine, she is doing a Princess/Ballerina birthday party  for a three year old and needed some party favors.  I found the crowns at Wal-Mart in the party favor section.

I have been very lucky lately winning some give-aways and now it is my turn, I am giving away an Easter Bunny nodder. the pattern is from Country Friends.  The rules are simple :  be a follower of my blog, new followers are welcome, leave a  comment on this post only.  For an extra : post on your sidebar or blog or FB or ??  Just let me know in your comment.  That's it.  The last day to enter is March 28th, so that I will have time to mail out to you before Easter.

Hope everyone has a great week!!!
