Doll Making Kits

Life has been very busy lately...summer vacation is starting to wind down and the kids will be back in school in a few weeks.  I will miss having them around, but I am looking forward to getting back into full swing making dolls! 

After a lot of deliberation, I have decided to offer a doll making kit.  There will only be a couple at first, and they will be available at a lower price point until all of the kinks are worked out.  I am hoping to get feedback from the first few to make the kit better for the rest of mamas that want to make a special doll for their kids.  The kit will include a pre-made head with nose, a pre-sewn body in your choice of color, lots of yummy wool for stuffing, a crochet cap in a color of your choice with matching yarn for hair, and plenty of fun yarn to make your doll unique.  I am working on finishing up the written instructions today, the listing will go active in the shop Saturday, July 24 at about noon EST.  The kits will be shipped out within about 10 business days.

Have a great Friday!  XOXO Debra

Sorry I have been a bit quiet lately...I have been elbow deep in LilBlueBoo's Ugly Knits Design Challenge!
I found an ugly, old, slightly stained white t-shirt and some ugly wool stuffing, dyed the shirt with coffee and henna and some other stuff to make it dark so the ugly wool wouldn't show,

 and turned it into this:

My girls have named her Hope...they Hope she wins the challenge LOL

I didn't dye all of the fabric dark though...the rest we tie dyed and will turn into a dress for her. 

Don't forget to check out LilBlueBoo's blog and try the challenge :o)
