I wanted to share a couple of things I made for Christmas gifts this year. First, I sewed a Christmas pillow for a friend. I appliqued the trees, did a little stitching, and added ric rac.
I kept an opening on the back so a pillow form could be used inside. I like to buy my pillow forms at IKEA and cut and sew it down to the size I want.
I couldn't wait to share the next gifts I made, these adorable Raggedy Ann dolls. I bought the patterns from Raggedy Old Annies. I've always have loved her dolls and I've admired them for years, so finally I bought the patterns to make some myself. Aren't they adorable? I thought a few of my little nieces might enjoy them.
I'm keeping the littlest one (above). Well, I couldn't give them all away! She is really little, less than a foot tall. I love her shoes!
The next smallest one. They also have cute little bloomers under their dress that I didn't take a picture of.
These last two are the largest dolls I made. I love their heart lips!
I had so much fun picking out the fabrics for their dresses. These were so much fun to make, I just might have to make more for my Etsy shop.
