Another Spring Doll Challenge creation to show you!

Happy Friday everyone!

I received an email from Linda at Lutka and Co...she had joined in the Spring Doll challenge that I have going on now...and look what she created!
Here is the story behind Linda's doll...in her words:

" I took your pattern and reduced it to half the original size (I like smaller dolls).  She stands approximately 10" tall. I decided to make her into a fairy.  She wears a pink and yellow petal skirt with a yellow felt tunic, pink shoes, and petaled acorn cap. Her hair is made of wool roving.  I inserted pipe cleaners in her arms and legs, which made stuffing easier since she is so small, and it had the added benefit of making her pose-able.  The only deviation from your pattern is on her feet.  Since I reduced the size, I was unable to turn the foot part of the pattern after sewing.  As for her facial features, I went with an Edith Flack Ackley style.  She came out looking a bit serious, but I think she's still cute ;). "
Linda also told me that at the beginning of the year, she challenged herself to create a doll each month...what fun!
Thank you for your submission Linda - She's a beautiful doll!   You were so creative and I love the ideas you came up with!  Didn't she do a great job gals??

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
God bless.

  2. Linda's doll is very beautiful. I'm afraid I might not get mine done in time. I cut her out and then got really sick with bronchitis. Can't work on anything involving "dust". The Amish doll I saw recently here was beautiful too!

  3. Linda did a beautiful job!!! My doll sits on my work table completely naked...the poor dear. When I was with my family last week my sister and mother worked on our dolls but none of us finished. :0( I'm still hoping to finish mine though. :0)
