the sweetest little dollies you ever did see


I made a few dolls for a few special little girls in my life.



She is wearing a cable knit ruffle-front sweater {not the easiest material to sew, but oh so cute} with yellow dot bubble skirt.




A little suit of jersey ruffles – sweet and simple.



Sawyer is funky with a polka-dot top, floral bubble skirt and a teensy flower pin {sewn on, not pinned}



The real Isabella is the best dressed little girl around, often sporting baby legs, so I decided to make a mini pair for this baby. 


Surely not as cute as the real little girls, but I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.

    Adorable is an understatement! Am I too old for a doll of my own? :)

    Would it be strange to say that I want one for myself ;-) Truthfully, I would love to make one for my little girl!!

    okay – i know its two weeks later but I remembered this post and want to make for Valentines day for my daughter. I have the same question as cara though! What is your body material made of? Is it a broadcloth? Thanks, Tobi

    I just made my first doll for a very special girl. I put her name and the verse that her parents chose for her on her back on a little patch. Thanks so much for sharing. Your dolls are adorable! I love the material you used, too. What is that? I just used muslin.

    Hi Emily,
    The dolls you made are beautiful! Would you mind sharing how you made the skirts? Thank you.

    I have been obsessing over these doll for about a year now and now that my little girl has come I am so excited to make one for her. I was wondering if like others above if you would mind sharing what kind of fabric was used for the body and/or how you made the skirts. Thanks for always being so inspiring. Everyone is getting Emily inspired gifts from me this year.
