We had a lovely Easter weekend (hope you all did too) but the whole family then came down with an unpleasant tummy bug. I didn’t even feel able to pick up my crochet hook so I must have been bad! So not much crochet to be able to share with you this week I’m afraid.
However, today I’m feeling a lot better and I did get out the sewing machine with my daughter. My Dutch aunt sent my daughter a lovely sewing kit in the post by a Dutch company called MikoDesign for her 10th birthday.
She had cut out the fabric pieces a little while ago but we hadn’t got round to sewing them together. Well today we did and it was a real pleasure to make. And seeing my daughter get involved in all aspects was a real joy. She helped to pin the fabric pieces, used the sewing machine (with guidance), turned the pieces inside out and stuffed the parts of the doll.
It has turned out so nice- a really delightful little doll!
The pieces sewed together so well. It really was a great quality sewing kit and I can highly recommend the company.
Now I must get that crochet hook out again and get back to it!
Happy Crocheting (or any kind of crafting) Everyone 🙂
So cute!! I love her shoes – makes her look like a twirling ballerina. 🙂
She does doesn’t she! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
What a cute doll it came out to be 🙂

Thanks so much Cathy. I’m pretty much back to normal now thankfully. This doll was such a fun make 🙂

Hi Sue, Thanks for the kind words. Yes I agree that it really is a special gift 🙂
So sweet. This is the sort of thing I would have loved to receive when I was little. I still would!
Me too! It was so lovely to make with my girl 🙂

What a gorgeous project. It must be lovely to be passing your skills onto your daughter. Glad to hear you are better now 🙂
Thank you. Yes it was lovely to share my joy of crafting with my daughter. Not always easy in a world where there are so many distractions in the form of screens! 🙂
I totally agree! The screens of all descriptions have a magnetism which is hard to break!
Lovely! The children made rag dolls in a workshop I held this week and loved every minute of it:)
Great aren’t they! We’ve just got back from a week in Cornwall so sorry for the delay in replying to your comment which is always appreciated 🙂
