I used antique shell buttons on the front of the dress , that were a gift….

made a fabric sash for the skirt….

I just have a few details to finish.

One is to use the onion skin dyed fabric to either stitch

some words or write them and attach it to the skirt.

The other is to decide if I am going to paint or sew boots on her.

      (I am blushing)
      My children always make me laugh and smile especially
      my daughters because they tell me like it is. Hannah and I
      had a lot of laughs…she tells me how silly I look or how to smile <3

    Oh, I don’t need to tell you this – enjoy her while she still wants to hang out with you (: This post makes me miss my girlie. Your doll is coming along nicely…

      I know they grow up too fast. : ( I am trying to hold on to the moments when
      they happen. She is my most independent child so when she wants to spend
      time with me, I will put aside everything else.
      I will use the doll as a fall decoration…thank you.

  5. When I see you and your daughters having fun I am reminded just how fast childhood takes place and to savor the days. Tomorrow Catherine, Isaac and I are going to make mole together.
    I love the metalic blue color in the skirt. All the colors blend well with each other. And the buttons were a perfect accent.
    Your post make me smile!!

      I know you spend a lot of time with your children and making
      mole together sounds fun. It does go by too fast!
      Those are the buttons you sent : )
      I am glad the post gave you a smile. <3

    I love your doll!! Really turned out great, and I also love the way you made the patchwork clothing.

    Such a sweet and beautiful photo of you and your daughter.

      I hope to make more dolls down the road.
      They are very labor/time consuming I think but, worth the result.
      I will use my pumpkin doll for Fall decoration. The funny part
      about the skirt is that I had to make it patchwork because
      I did not have any large pieces of fabric on hand, in the colors I needed
      to make the skirt. She is a large doll. Approx 30 + inches.
      My daughter makes me smile. She has quite the personality. Thank you <3
