Rag Doll

Tried something new I made a rag doll.  Va (Bianca4430) on Youtube did a tutorial showing how she made these cute little rag doll.  I decided to give it a try and believe you me I had some challenges for I haven't sewn in years.  I always thought my Grandma was so cool because she could take a piece of material and just start cutting and come up with something fantastic,  Believe you me I'm not my Grandma it took me forever to figure out how to make it all work.  I had to do the bodice twice.  I am a lace hoarder (if you ask my DH he will say I hoard everything) so it was real hard for me to cut into the lace that I used.  I'm trying to get a grip that if I use it, it's ok. Even though I may not ever have it again,  I will find something that will take it's place.  Back to the making of the doll.  I used muslin that I have had in my stash for years and the lavender ribbon in her hair came from Lisa (Maggie2005cupcke)  and the large piece of lace that is on the bottom of her skirt is from Linda (GoinCri/CrAzY) that I won in one of her subbie giveaways.  Everything else was from my own stash. I lined the dress and made the pantaloons.  The shoes are lace and ribbon. I'm not sure  I like her face but once I drew it on there was no turning back.  LOL!!!!  My friend said she has an attitude.     I also made a little pillow that Va has a tutorial for.  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and please leave a comment for they are read and I appreciate each and every one of them .
Hugs, Donalda
