CSS Rag Dolls

Before I get to my post for this morning, I want to say, "Thank you!!" Although I didn't advance to the final round of Gallery Idol, I'm thankful that I made it to the top 10  :)

-----------------------------------------------


You may have seen the Clear and Simple Stamps rag doll stamps before, and now they have the perfect companion...real rag dolls!

Using the new CSS dies, I was able to construct a doll using some fun fabric I had in my stash.  I've shown sewing projects on my blog before, so I'm glad to add another to the mix :)


The dies made it easy because I didn't have to worry about a pattern or cutting out pieces by hand. I did, however, add a trim to the bottom of the dress, little shoes, and a bow.  This doll was fun to customize!


...and of course I needed a matching card:

(isn't that bike fabric the cutest?!) 




I know I say this all the time, but it's true- I'm excited to see what the other girls made for today!! I hope you visit them too:

  6. The rag doll is adorable! I think her hair is perfect--no stringy yarn to try to keep in place.
