Handmade Christmas: Black Apple Doll

i'm working hard to make as many gifts as i can this year. makes me feel good. i especially love making things for matilda. i love seeing her face and hearing her say "whaaaooowww." worth every second.

my first gift i've made for her was made in her likeness using this pattern from the black apple. thanks emily!

i love how customizable these dolls are. i think i'll make her some accessories. a little scarf perhaps?



i'm really proud of her shoes because i figured out how to make them all by myself! pat pat.





matilda has already received a couple of handmade gifts this season. aren't we lucky?



jessica made matilda this sweet sweet doll. we are both so in love with her. thank you so much!



mama lou's dear friend cp sent a Christmas table runner made of some of lou's scraps. what a thoughtful person she is, she also sent this cloth book with vintage drawings. matilda ooeed and awwwed. thank you with all my heart.

got any plans to whip something up? do share!

That is so darling, Les! I'm making my mama and my boyfriend's mama some homemade pressies. Since they are not blog inclined, I might make update posts. I get the fabric tomorrow! Thanks for the fabric.com rec!
