Immy’s New Dolly

Here is the little Dolly I made for Immy, my youngest. I made her using a nice piece of linen I had in my cupboard, and I used new wool for her hair.

I wanted to blend some of Immy’s favourite old clothes into this toy, and Immy really enjoys talking about the details of her dolly’s clothes and little bed. I found a very old and much-loved pair of Polarn O Pyret tights that my girls have finally worn out to make dolly’s legs.

To make the little pyjamas I chose the ‘Kipper Vest’  (Immy’s favourite vest which she is now outgrown; it has a little dog on the front).

I created a little sleeping bag bed from one of the old cot sheets and another cute vest.

Hopefully, Dolly will be a much-loved toy made from some old favourite things! x

    This is so lovely. I love using the favourite clothes. It reminds me of a navy blue striped cat my Mum made me out of a soft nightdress I loved (I was about 10 or 11).
