My younger daughter recently asked me if I would make a doll for the child she is expecting. She wanted a doll the same as the one I had made for her when she was little.
You can see the doll peeping out of the cardboard box on the left side. I’m not sure if that is her doll or her sisters.
She doesn’t know the sex of the baby yet so I can only make the body of the doll and do the rest when the baby is born.
I made dolls for each of our children.
This one is in the toy basket that sits in our family room now for when the youngest grandchild visits.
The first doll was Jemima, named after the Playschool doll. The second doll was Josephine and the last one, which you can see here, was Jeremy.
Jeremy was our son’s and it got a bit more wear and tear than the girl dolls. It has had some repair done where the arm came adrift after some vigorous tussling!
The pattern is from 1978 but as I keep all my patterns I found it in my pattern box.
Unfortunately I don’t have the shoe pattern but I should be able to conjure something up.
I generally have some calico in my stash and so I was able to get the pieces cut out yesterday.
I should get the body of the doll done today then we just need to wait until the baby is born to do the hair and clothing.
