late for brunch

 "Ellora, the Queen says brunch is getting cold. Put down the book already and let's go."

 "Inna minute."


I have pattern testers all lined up (thank you thank you thank you) and I'm putting the finishing touches on the Wee Princess Pea pattern now! I hope to have the PDF pattern available in the shop in late September. 

This is a doll project that will be a delight and challenge to anyone who loves crafting, sewing, tins, doll houses and mini-anything. A couple of readers have asked about doing this project with their kids. While the finished toy is designed for school age kids, and while you could certainly include craft-savvy kids in the process, this is more of an adult skill project.

    1. Grandma G, it's a technique pioneered by Dame Dob, but Jack and Jill leveraged a nice book deal out of it.

    2. I see! And it's available from Amazon, of course? I (or rather, some of my dolls) may need to try out that technique! ;)

    3. No, it's out of print, unfortunately. Vinegar and brown paper. Who knew? :-)

    4. Aha! And does the book (cover) come with the pattern?

    5. Grandma G, I hadn't planned on including it in the pattern, but I can make it available for free for whomever wants it at some point.

  7. It's been a looong time time since I last visited (never mind comment).
    These dolls are so cute! Who to make them for ? My girls already have so many dolls (esp.barbies) and not enough room.

    1. HeatherMavis, welcome back! Thanks for your comment! Thankfully these dolls are really small so they don't take up much space. :-)

  8. You are so clever. I love your little book and the little conversations your dolls have! I agree. This is an adult-level skill project. E. did help me with a few things, but most of it was beyond her skill level. :-)
