Yesterday my younger son came home from kindergarten and announced he needed to give a gift to his friend. A friend that's a girl who had birthday this week.
As this was such a rare request from my son, I thought it might be best to comply with such noble desires.
I asked him what he wanted to do, and he replied he wanted to make her a doll. I got over my shock, and started thinking of something simple we could work on together quickly. I remembered Cheryl's darling post a month or so ago of some dolls she made for her daughter. I showed Little Boy the dolls, and he agreed it would work. I downloaded the pattern from Martha, and enlarged it to 125%, and then added a 1/4" seam allowance around the arms and legs.
Little Boy chose the fabric from my stash, helped me to stuff the limbs, and stuffed the body all by himself.
I was going to paint the face, then remembered we had these fun markers from when the kids decorated their Christmas pajamas. Little Boy colored the cheeks all by himself.
Now she's ready to be wrapped and delivered to one lucky girl.
Hoping you have a wonderful weekend. We're off to finish up some projects on the outside of the house while the drywall contractors finish up the texture and taping of the upstairs.
