I'm making a new 'Krista' doll as i sold my last one and I need another one for the workshop I am giving in April. I thought I'd do a Retro style dress for her as the original doll didn't have a dress pattern.
The dress pattern took longer to design and make than the whole doll! The main thing is I had great fun making it from panels of plain and spot quilting fabric. She also has a half petticoat with cotton lace of course, and lacy knickers. Painted shoes and an appropriate wig to finish her off and -'Voila'!
Think the ladies will enjoy making this one?

|Troll for Tree|
A day alone today! Yay! The last week I have made three baby Trolls, and when I got one finished, my granddaughter grabbed that one and then my sister Tree the next, so I’ve just about finished my third! I wanted to complete one for my doll class to see if they wanted to make one for Easter. They turn out different each time I make one! So cute! These are Ute's Trolls of course, and don;t take long to make. You could make them crawling, sleeping, hiding - anything! They are delightful fun! Thanks Ute!
