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
