Hi all, and a big welcome to all my new followers.

So my first craft fair was just over a week ago now, it was very quiet but I managed to meet some lovely people and sell a few items. I have got a few more booked in October and December so I will tell you how it goes.

Now back to Rosa.

It was my little girl’s first birthday this weekend gone and I wanted to buy/make her something special that she could keep. We had already bought her a lovely wooden pink pram for her teddies (she loves teddies) so I decided to make her a little rag doll.

I remember my little sister had an adorable rag doll when she was younger, she was called Stripey (she had stripey tights) and she was knitted. My sister used to have this little limp rag doll hanging from her hand for most of the day, very sweet.

So I set to work, I had less than five days to do prepare a first birthday party, make a cake, make a rag doll and cram all my every day tasks in, pushing it but I managed.

I think the most consuming part of making the rag doll was the hair although to be honest it is well worth the effort. I am also not a the best seamstress but I managed to knock up both the doll and dress using Annaboo’s House fabulous blog!

Here is the end result.

So what do you think? I think she is adorable, my little girl on the other hand is not quite in to dolls, she loves her teddies too much, so Rosa came out of the pram and teddy went in. Hopefully she will grow in to dolls!
