A Small Doll
I meant to post this little lady on Monday but I'm up at the cabin and the internet I'm used to borrowing was turned off until today. I made this Olive doll for my friend Paige's baby shower. Paige and I met at U of I many years ago when we were both Photography majors but she, unlike me, stuck with it and is now a super talented wedding photographer in Charleston, SC. Lucky for me she had her baby shower outside Madison, WI so I was able to attend!
I had originally planned to make something clothing related for her but I quickly discovered it's sort of difficult to find clothing sewing patterns for newborns and I wasn't sure it made much sense to knit something for a South Carolina baby due in September. Sweat City! Everything sewing seems to be for 6 months and up so little Hadley will have to wait a few months for that. Anyway, this is my second time making this pattern and I think the doll turned out pretty cute. I improvised a skirt and dress, both of which are just rectangles sewn together with elastic waist and neck bands. Definitely recommend this pattern if you need to make a doll for anyone, or yourself!
