does this crown make me look fat?

"Dearest Ariana, does this crown make me look fat?"
"Um yes, Lorelei. I keep telling you it looks better on me. Black hair is very slimming, you know. Wow, this bed is super uncomfortable. What is the deal?"
Y'all. I'm having a lot of fun playing with dolls. The Wee Princess Pea pattern is almost finished. My biggest problem so far is reining myself in and not making it have a ridiculous number of tiny accessories so it can be 1) made in a reasonable amount of time 2) easily portable for playtime on the go. Even so, this pattern will call for two tins. You'll see why. My girls visit the sample dolls in my studio several times a day and I finally had to cave and give them each a princess of their choice so they would quit making big Puss-In-Boots eyes at me and scram.

  5. Oh, you've been busy! These are sooo cute and I can just imagine you and your girlies playing in your craft room. This may be your best one yet! Love, Love, Love it! (BTW- Madi slept with her Kaley Kitty the other night. She is still lugging it around with her and dressing her up. Such a special gift!)
