I made a doll for Kate’s sweet friend Frances’ fourth birthday. It was pretty easy and lots of fun. I’ve never sewn a doll or embroidered anything, and it wasn’t very difficult at all. I used this pattern. Here’s how it turned out:

I was already planning on making Kate and Lexi versions for Christmas, I love making gifts!

  1. Nice job! She’s really cute.

  2. How cute! I so wish I had any ability to make things…..

  3. She really is super darling. I especially love the color combination.

  4. Very cute! :) The embroidered face turned out well! I love seeing remnants of old sewing projects on new things, too. :)

  5. I could hug you for posting this! I have 8 nieces, 7 of whom would adore these dolls. I also have a closet full of fabric scraps and embroidery thread. And possibly some batting lying around somewhere. viola! free Christmas presents!

  6. cute! thanks for the link…
    maybe we’ll try too. ;)

  7. i’m making these for my girls in children’s church. i was thinking of embroidering faces instead of paint, but i’ve never done it and don’t have a clue where to start… any suggestions?

  8. Embroidery is really easy to teach yourself, I learned with this book, but whatever the library has will probably work! Or, bring a tea towel, needle, floss and hoop to barnes and noble for an hour and just look at the book :)
