We are taking a little break from Clara and her new wardrobe this week - to show a wonderful surprise that I received.
A lovely package came in the mail this week - from my friend Candy, who also collects dolls and sews beautiful clothes for them. Be sure and visit her to see all her new dolls and their wonderful outfits.
She said she had a few small things to send me - oh my - what a great collection of small things.
Stacks and stacks of fabrics - stripes, dots and checks
Plaids and fancy prints
Lots of pretty flowered fabrics - the pink with blue flowers is corduroy
And lace fabric and lengths of pretty lace edging
Five new patterns - so many new outfits to sew for my dolls - they are excited to see all the choices
A wardrobe of old fashioned outfits
Fun vintage patterns
Pretty, pretty dresses
And lots of outfits
And the biggest surprise of all
A new doll - to join the others I have. Her name is Kyla and she has lovely curly brown hair. She can't wait to join the others in all their fun.
Isn't that a fun package? And what a wonderful friend - thank you so much Candy.
And now a new project of clothes for the dolls. I think the red plaid will made great shirts, perfect for a day at the stables with pony.
And I am going to pick different fabrics and trims to make dresses for all the dolls - using the pattern second from the right, top row. It will be fun to see how different the dresses look in different fabrics and trims. They'll all be ready for summer in their new dresses.
