Today I´m joining Jo of Serendipitous Stitching for the Gifted Gorgeousness check-in which is on the 15th of each month. This SAL is all about showing anything gift related whether given or received.
Here is the rag doll which I have just finished.
My daughter requested a doll for her yoga class of infants to show them the 7 chakras of the body and I had an old pattern which I could use.
I first made `Betty´ over 16 years ago when my granddaughter was born. The doll is a cheerful soul who loves a bath and to sunbathe.
I think we will make it different from the pattern this time.
It was fun making the wool hair and I like the curls, hope she does too.
I´m leaving the markings of the chakras for my daughter to apply.

Thank you for looking.
Both dolls are darling, Sheryl! You are always so creative and the red curls really make the smaller doll so sweet. I've heard of chakras, but have no clue what they exactly are. Off to "google it!" Enjoy your day ♥ReplyDelete
Śliczne lalki, moim marzeniem jest zrobienie podobnej :)pozdrawiam.ReplyDelete
Oh, I love Betty's friend's red curls. Betty looks as beautiful today as she did 16 years ago. What a difference a bath and bubbles makes. Sheryl, you have fashioned two fabulous dolls. Both are so very sweet. Love those faces.ReplyDelete
Those curls are indeed impressive on their own, both dolls are great. I have seen faces for a friend who makes dolls but not attempted a full doll of my own, perhaps one day.ReplyDelete
Very impressive curls, great dolls, thanks for sharing the history of them too.ReplyDelete
Oh I love these little dolls Sheryl! They are perfect! Hope you are having a nice week! We have heavy snow here!! Christine xxReplyDelete
Very sweet and practical dolls!ReplyDelete
Both dolls are cute, Sheryl! Love the red curls:)ReplyDelete
The doll seemed to enjoy the special spa treatment ;)
I don't know about the Chakras as I am not into yoga but all I know is that it is a Hindi/Sanskrit language word meaning 'Wheel'
I love the curls. How do you make the curls stay. I see them wrapped around drinking straws but what keeps the curls in place ? Just lovely!ReplyDelete
Not drinking straws Karen, the wool is wrapped round wooden craft sticks, soaked in water, drained, then dried in the oven.Delete
I love the wonderfully curly hair!ReplyDelete
Although I must admit that washing soft toys is something I'm rather reluctant to do, being afraid that they'd never dry!
Those red curls are amazing!! Great job!ReplyDelete
Thanks for taking part in GG this month. I love her curly red hair and what a clever way to get it just perfect too. I do hope she keeps in touch with Betty and enjoys her yoga lessons!ReplyDelete
She is a cutie!! You did a great job on both Betty and the new baby! Love how she sunbathes.ReplyDelete
Such a cute project, Sheryl.ReplyDelete
The curly hair is brilliant! I love the older doll having a bath! xxReplyDelete
Love the dolls , just so cute.ReplyDelete
I love the curls for the new doll.ReplyDelete
Fabulous red curls, that was always my dream hair. Never did have enough patience to grow it like that though! How do you get them to stay curly?ReplyDelete
How cute! I love the curly hair.ReplyDelete
So cute and adorable, love them both Sheryl.ReplyDelete
That doll is so cute! Reminds me a but of Merida from Brave.ReplyDelete
Both old and new dolls are just precious and I adore the mop of red curls!ReplyDelete
Awe, they are both so precious, what treasures they are. Betty cleans up very nicely!ReplyDelete
