~Finishing up the small things~

 

I began this project long ago. I have worked in spurts around a full-time job, the holidays and some major stress at work. Not to mention my sewing machine had a melt down (after returning from the repair shop). Some nights I am so tired it’s all I can do to fall into bed. That being said, I have loved working on this little doll.   It will be hard to say goodbye, but it’s time for her to be on her way.  I just have a few more small things to finish up. Like binding her quilt, stitching up her little pillow. Make a nightie and she could use one more dress.  **Happy to say all of that is done**  Although, I keep thinking she needs one more pair of shoes and a going away bag to hold her clothes.  Hmm, no, I think it’s time to go.

She is ready to roll. I am ready to move on to my next doll. She will have green eyes and red hair (so I’ve been told).

 

I can’t wait to see what her name will be. She is going far away to live in Washington State with a special little girl. I told her she must be very sweet and a best friend to her new mommy. I think she listened.

I will miss you little friend but I know your going home to right where you belong, so I want you to be good and be sweet!

~ You gotta have Faith~

Meet my new little friend Faith.

I love her.  Her picture is blurry, but I still think she is beautiful.

So hard to get a good picture.

She loves to be outside, barefoot with the wind blowing her long hair. Her mom made her put it up in ponytails.

She loves the Autumn light.

She loves to smell the flowers.

Details:

Waldorf Inspired Doll pattern from:: Growing up Sew Liberated. So cute!

Hair from::  my FAVORITE yarn lady, Camilla.

Mixed with a blonde mix from Dancing Rain Dolls, which unfortunately is no longer in business 😦

Peasant dress, my own pattern.

Leggings, I modified with 2 layers of ruffles from this pattern.

Sweater is::  Little Kina   I modified the pattern a bit by knitting a long sleeve version.

I named my Waldorf Inspired doll Faith because I made her at the same time we were facing personal challenges at home.  Through prayer and faith, today things are much improved. I have George Michael singing in my head, but it’s true, You Gotta Have Faith, Faith, Faith.

I really loved making this doll, she is my 2nd Waldorf Inspired doll. The first was from a kit from Dancing Rain dolls, the kit came with a pre-formed head. This time I bought my supplies from Weir Dolls. The head was a challenge but I think it came out just fine.  I foresee making more little friends, oh yes I do.
