Poppy doll number four

March 24, 2011


I have now made four "Poppy" dolls (by Hop Skip Jump). The latest doll on the right is for a friend's baby and is pictured here with her friends at the Collingwood children's farm.


Jemima was made with a creamy yellow wool I purchased from Rathdowne Remnants. Her hair is a chocolate brown velvet and her cheeks are made with suede. I made her little dress and bloomers from some leftovers from Indianna's quilt.  The dress skirt is made of calico with a purple ribbon trim. These dolls have been so much fun to make.  It is a joy to see their little faces come together and to make their sweet outfits, but most of all to know they will be loved and cherished by some special little girls.
