I have lots of pictures with this post so be warned!
I joined Cindy's Travel doll swap.
My first Annie doll. I am so happy with how she turned out. I used this pattern by Denise White of The Cat's Pyjamas.
She also smells amazing because you stain her with a mix of coffee, cinnamon and vanilla...yummy!
I also gave her a belly button and heart but decided not to photograph them....after all, a girl needs her privacy.
The thing I was most worried about was making teeny weeny clothes but I managed to slog my way through. I threw out 3 pantaloons before getting them right...oh, and 3 tops....the pattern that came with Annie was too snug so I kept trying new 'versions.'
The tunic turned out really cute, I hand stitched the button holes since they are so teensy...gave me a new appreciation for not being Laura Ingalls...
See that teeny apron made from the cute picnic-y fabric?
Well....since I know Sandy loves to bake, I made HER one too! It turned out so well, I almost couldn't part with it.
here is a close up of Annie in her little basket with her baby doll and teeny journal...
a little notebook, cookie cutters, some baubles, a recipe and fairy fireplace...all for Fairy hunting!
Wait a minute!...why is there a Mardi Gras sign and Saints flag and VOODOO doll in her package?
Well, lets just say Annie had a GREAT time attending her FIRST Mardi Gras parade!
During the parade, Mr. VooDoo flew through the air in order to meet her....
You can see him whispering sweet nothings into her ear.
I think he is a bit over bearing though...she seems a tad frazzled by all the attention....I hope he didn't say anything inappropriate!
