Every year for Christmas I make some handmade gifts, usually I end up trying a craft new to me and scramble to make it the night before. This year was no exption, 2 days before the 24th, I decided I would finally sew up the waldorf
I had purchased for Miss E almost 2 years ago. I have been so nervous sewing up this doll, that it has taken me 2 years to build up the courage to go at it. Of course, this was intended to be a surprise and so I sewed two night in a row while the kids were sleeping and 10 hours later came up with this little- not so little doll.
I only wish my embroidery skills were a little better, I think her eyes could be bigger and a little closer to her nose. I might try and re-do them, but I'm afarid of ruining the whole thing. Or maybe I could just make another or two or three! Yup, I'm totally hooked.
Miss E LOVED her so much, the reaction she had when she opened her gift was priceless and well worth the sleepless nights- I couldn't help but cry.
