Fabric Paper Dolls...

August 1 is my granddaughter's 2nd birthday.  I think she is a little young for these dolls but I just couldn't resist making them for her.  The clothes snap on and I have to hold myself back from making more and just get them in the mail.  It takes forever to get from here to Kauai.





The dolls and clothes are felt and fabric.  And the original idea is from:

and

and

I originally thought that if I backed the dresses with felt they would "stick" on the dolls but it didn't work well enough and I figured Ava would get frustrated.  So everyone has a snap instead.  We'll see.  Hopefully she can have fun with these or my son (Adam) can send them back to me for later!

And a very sleepy Django the other morning at 6:30 am.  Time for breakfast so we can ride by 7:30.  I love this horse!

Happy Tuesday!
