black apple doll

so ... I almost forgot I blogged here! April was busy, but it did include some crafting. I'm going to try to get posts up much more frequently, because I have a little bit of ground to cover.

Let's go in reverse order - I am quite smitten with my latest sewing project, the Black Apple Doll.

aww ... cute, right?

I just might make 50 of them. The creator, Emily Martin, was featured on the Martha Stewart Show a couple months back and generously provided her doll pattern for Martha's website. Don't want to make it yourself? You can buy them in Emily's super popular Etsy Shop.

I made a few mistakes the first go round, so she's not perfect, but I like to think that just adds character. Also, I deviated slightly from the tutorial and embroidered her face instead of using fabric paint.

What do you think? Does every little girl in my family need one? Do I need 5 just for me?

She's precious! And I think that embroidering the face is WAY more special than fabric paint! Good for you!

Your projects make me REALLY wish I had a sewing machine, because this doll is adorable! Too bad I don't have any daughters to make one for, but I have plenty of nieces!

I enjoy viewing your newest creation because it's making me want to try some of your projects - especially this cutie - I could just see my little ruth dragging her around with her everywhere.

Hi Jill - I'm new to your blog and just want to say that your dolly is way sweeter than the ones I saw through the links... I like the cute mary janes you gave her. And totally off topic--The Time Traveler's Wife is one of my favorite books, too!

Very cute doll I'd like to make one like that as a present, because my daughter loves dolls and what a best opportunity that making a doll with my own hands.
