She did great for her first time! She guided the fabric while I pressed the pedal.
Here's her sewed up doll. She wanted to get the plain girl and color it herself.
Next step was stuffing! (This ended up being a 2 day project. Notice the different PJ's)
Here's the finished, sewed up, and stuffed doll. We ended up doing 2 dolls because she decided she wanted the first one for herself!
I wrote her name and year on the back of the doll so we would all remember! It truly was a great gift! I would suggest these patterns for any kid! It was very easy and it took just a little bit of fabric. This could even be hand sewn if you didn't want to get out the sewing machine! If you're a more experienced sewer, check out the other patterns available from Bit of Whimsy.
She also has finished dolls available for purchase in her shop!
