In the middle of November, I decided that it would be a good idea to make dolls for the kids for Christmas. A month should be PLENTY of time, right?! I finished the last seam and button last night. Two nights before Christmas Eve. If I had a bit more time, I would have been more elaborate with the costumes, but I did all six outfits this week, so I couldn't do too much. I can always add to the wardrobes, right?
So, here they are:
My favorite, Alaric (oh, I named them for the kids, so they don't end up being called brownie, blackie, Mr. Curly, etc. :p). Alaric means Ruler of All in German.
His shirt is made from a scrap of gingham that I had and a sweater of Ken's that had shrunk. I washed it in hot water to felt it even more (boy, is it thick!).
The first two are Joseph's.
This is Zuri (Swahili for "Good Looking")
Libby is getting Darby (Free in Gaelic)
and Marisol (Sunny Sea in Spanish)
Caroline is getting Erin (peace in Gaelic)
and Meiying (Beautiful flower in Mandarin)
