A Dolly for Helena


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.
