Well...here she is. This little bear is sad because she has been hiding in the top of a closet for a long time. She is worn, but none the less loved, except all the kids grew up and she was left behind. This outfit is for my grand daughter's American Girl doll. It's been a real challenge for me to sew since I didn't have a doll to try the clothes on for fit. After finishing this outfit, I found this sad little bear and dressed her up in the new digs. I think I see her smiling. Awh...
I was afraid I wouldn't finish her in time for Ali's tenth birthday, so I've already sent her a card and a check. I will mail this next week. I hope she likes it.
I made her another shirt to go with the ensemble. After all a bear needs a change every now and then. See this little crochet turtle? It is similar to the one I had as a kid. You put a bar of soap in it and bath with it. I found this at a fair a while back. Then I forgot about it, found on one of my cleaning jags. Do any of you crochet these little cute turtles? I would like to have another one. Please let me know if you can help me out.
Well, that is about it for me. I was suppose to clean out our master bedroom closet. I've been clearing out and sorting stuff and organizing again. I'm glad I choose to have fun sewing, though it was hard at first 'cause my machine was still messed up. The underside stitching was a mess. I've fixed it now, but it sure gave me fits.
I hope you are surviving the heat. It's about to do me in. Hubs' garden has all but burned up. Today he plowed it all into the ground. Have a great weekend.
