My goodness, this is a sweet little doll!
I made one earlier in the summer for a friend and loved how it turned out.
You can find the tutorial I used here. I wanted to make one for Ella's birthday but about twice as big.
Again I used vintage fabrics from my Dad--the apron is from a Victorian pillowcase, the sash from a an old linen, the dress from a 1940s dress that I had high hopes of altering for myself--more on that in an upcoming post. The button is from the 60s and the scarf is from a vintage tablecloth. The only fabric that is not vintage is the felt that I used for the hair and the muslin for the face and the arms.
I am so excited to give Ella her new doll. I know she will love it just as much as I do!
