We have a new addition to our home.
Light skin, layered red hair, brown eyes.
Frannie doesn't actually "play" with dolls any longer. She enjoys styling their hair. We both like to craft, knit, crochet and sew for them. That's how I first learned to sew - by making doll clothes.
Do you see that cute, raspberry beret American Girl #35 is wearing? I didn't make that. But I could have. If I wanted to. Tongue-in-cheek.
I did crochet these two, doll-sized afghans with coordinating pillows especially for her. My pattern cue for the white, pink and aqua afghan came from Mille Makes and Dottie Angel. You can find the tutorial here. The pink/aqua afghan was inspired by Helen Philipps. It looks just like the one she made. There is no pattern (I just winged it), but you can view it here. The pillows are crocheted rounds (front and back are the same) that were stuffed with fiberfill and tufted with buttons (vintage buttons on the white pillow).
