Today, I'm scoring Cool Points in the Auntie category. Why, you ask? Because I'm making rag dolls for my nieces. Nieces, plural, you ask? [My, you're inquisitive today!] Yes, plural - my sweet little sister is expecting a lovely little one in April. What better preparation for a new life than a new doll? Exactly what I said. [Plus, I'm sure my three-year-old niece would love a new dolly for her next birthday.]
I found a preprinted pattern on clearance, and thought I would give her a shot. I'm also making my own pattern from this one, so as to be able to personalize each doll to best fit her 'mommy'. So far, things are going together fairly well; I am hopeful that the end result might actually be snuggle-able.
