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!
