I’m a little late for Show and Tell , but I think I’ve made it just in time! These dolls were the first thing I ever sewed on a sewing machine (prior to that, I’d done all of my sewing by hand.) I’ve lost count of how many of them I’ve made over the past 12 years. This is the first one I’ve made in a long time. I love sewing them, from rummaging through remnant bins to find just the right fabric, to seeing the flower hats suddenly look like flowers instead of strangely shaped pieces of cloth. I still need to paint on her face and her shoes, but I think she’s a pretty sweet little pansy. I can’t decide if she needs an apron.
I’m about to start a rose now, then I have the prettiest fabric to make a dress for a daisy. Then, maybe a zinnia or a sunflower. I’m considering making them to sell, but I haven’t made up my mind about that yet.
