My Zumba teacher recently adopted a little girl in China. As a gift, I made two things for her little girl. The first item was a sweet little hat. I love the way the textures and the colors come together for such a girly look.
And then I just HAD to make her a doll. I used the free pattern from The Black Apple. This is the pattern that was shown on the Martha Stewart Show. It's an incredibly easy pattern but has such a great result. I love the adorable look of the doll!
I will definitely make this pattern again - it's perfect for a very young child as there is nothing that could be a choking hazard. Plus, think of the different looks you can create just by using different fabrics! You could even turn it into a boy doll.
Anyway, one side note, has everyone been enjoying the Olympics? I LOVE the Olympics - it' so much fun to see the world come together in one place. I am always so inspired by all of the stories told during the games. Just wonderful. :)
