I found this antique doll set (ceramic?) at a thrift store. It reminded me of the dolls my grandmother used to sew.
Using the tiny scraps, I sewed the limbs and took the tiniest of the scraps and broke them down into smaller pieces with the scissors. This would serve as stuffing for the doll, and a great way to use up scraps that were too small to sew into anything.
Arms are made, and the chest of the doll and wrapping things up with the legs.
Doll is complete, and now I'm making her a pioneer dress.
This lovely red contrast fabric came from one of the cuffs. You can tell where the crease is, so I had to take the iron to it to smooth it out.
Dress is made, and using the blue contrast fabric (from the button side of front shirt), I trimmed the bottom of the gown to give it some length and to add more style.
Cutting out the brim for the bonnet from the doubled stitched neckline of shirt. I won't have to hem the front of bonnet.
Okay, I'm thinking I may be able to wrap up this challenge with ONE more item...
