Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap.
Dress Up Doll Blanket
I started with 2 yards of pre-quilted material. I finished the edges with quillting bias tape, double fold. I used poster board to draw my doll template. I cut out the doll shape from felt.
The doll was permanently attached to the blanket. So was the hair and eyes. The mouth is just black yarn and I used a darning needle to sew the mouth.
Then I started to make it's clothes. The night gown is made from left over material that I have. I attached felt to the back so that it would stick to the doll. I did this with all the outfits I made.
I considered Velcro, but when I tried it, it pulled on the felt. I was afraid that it would end up pulling the felt apart with too much use. Knowing my granddaughter, that's a strong possibility. I hope she likes this Christmas present. What is not shown here are the bows and shoes I made to match each outfit. The pattern from Pinterest made the shoes permanent. My daughter says that Lily loves shoes. So I made her's interchangeable.
Thank you for letting me share.
