Hi guys!! Are you ready for a surprise? Of course you are!
But she is not ours! 🙂
My mom, chief knitter/crochet artist, received her very first doll this week! She was always struggling with measurements for the dolls whenever she was working on projects for them, so the team here at Faking It Mostly decided that it was time for Grandma to have a doll of her very own to sew, crochet, and knit for!
We found this little beauty on eBay for a fraction of the cost of an AG doll new! She was in such good shape that we just knew that we had to have her, and the bonus? She has straight black hair! Exactly like my mom! 🙂
It was the perfect match!
She’s so cute! 🙂
When she arrived, we cleaned her limbs, brushed her hair nice, and sewed up a brand new pink sundress with a matching hairband for her.
She came with the cute pink shoes.
Once she was ready to go, we secured her into a spare AG doll box that we had on hand.
Then we wrapped her up, good as new! ❤
Boy was my mom surprised! 🙂
Now the girls and their dolls can have a visit with Wendy Chloe any time that they go to Grandma’s house! 🙂 And Grandma doesn’t have to worry about getting the measurements wrong when she’s knitting for the dolls. 😉 ❤
(I made this little sundress using the OhSewKat! Sugar & Spice pattern from PixieFaire. I recommend the sleeveless pattern for any beginner seamstresses out there.)
I hope you enjoyed the surprise! 🙂
