I'll start with one of the gifts I am making for my little girl. This is a fun rehash of a doll I made for my niece years and years ago. I purchased the PDF pattern from MMMcrafts which you'll still find in their Etsy shop here: Katy Kitty Doll PDF pattern by MMMCrafts. Below is a picture in it's beginning stages:
The solid purple body parts are flannel which I prewashed/shrank. The face, eyes, and soon other decorative parts are felt which I will embroider (to the best of my ability). The clothing is scrap quilting cotton. She'll have a little skirt too.
There's a lot more handwork on this project than I'm used to, but I find myself completing these portions out of my creative haven - either in front of the TV or on my lunch break at the J-O-B.
