Like usual when Sarah over at Dolls and Daydreams announced the release of her new Little Sister Mimi doll earlier this month I immediately hit etsy to buy the pattern!
She is just so cute I couldn't resist the chance to make her! It didn't take long for me to find a reason. Good friends of ours are in town this weekend from Pennsylvania visiting with their family, which includes 2 1/2 year old Helena. I decided that I needed to make her one for an early Christmas present.
I LOVE THIS DOLL! I must admit that she turned out so cute it was a little hard to give her away.
This time I decided to paint her facial features instead of embroider them. I love how it turned out.
It was really nice to be there when the present was opened. So often the toys that I make are mailed to their recipient. She immediately named her Cookie.
I also made a her older sister Caitlin a soft basketball.
