I found this link on pinterest a couple weeks ago and knew it would be my next attempt at finding something to keep my 2 year old daughter quiet and calm during church. But sadly, there were no patterns or a tutorial :( But that didn't stop me. I sat down and drew a similar shape of the doll and dress on my own referencing the pictures.
I did do a couple things different. I couldn't figure out how she did the eyes, so I just painted them on with fabric paint. And I didn't do the cheeks. Also, I made a swimsuit on the doll instead of underwear since my daughter is excited about swimming lately.
I do wish that felt came in some better colors. There isn't a good "blonde" or "strawberry blonde" in the cheap felt, so I let my daughter choose the color of hair for the dolls. She chose bright pink and brown. I was a little worried about the pink, but that one is my favorite now. I won't be trying to make a "ball gown" again - it was hard to try and gather and hem the small piece of satin.
There are still a few more dresses I want to make, but my next step is to try and figure out how she did the house. I may just try to cover a binder in fabric/felt and use that to carry them in.
