More Dolly Donations

I finished the four dolls I started last week for Dolly Donations. I am both less and more pleased with this batch. I keep trying to be critical of my work, but all I can think is that somewhere in Haiti there is a child without a single toy who is not going to notice uneven eyelashes or a slight curve in a seam that is supposed to be straight.

This is my favorite doll this time around. As I was working on him I couldn't decide if he was ugly or cute. I have now definitely decided cute. I really like his features. I have just a tiny bit of the brown fabric I used to make him left. I am thinking about tweaking the way I have been making the dolls in order to get as many as I can out of this last tiny scrap. I think I might be able to do three or four if I do it right.


  1. They a wonderful, and will be sooooo loved!

    Thank you so much!

  2. The deadline is the end of March, right?

    I don't sew, but I have a lot of money ;) This is a project I'd love to be involved in...If you want some to buy more brown fabric to make more dolls for Haitian children, I will send you some cash.

  3. Weird to have the first part of a conversation here, the middle on Facebook, and the end here.

    I started to write your address on the envelope and remembered you just moved. I need you to email me your new address.

  4. Okay, I'm putting some brown fabric in the mail today.

    I stuck a couple of pieces of black felt in the envelope too...they were in my stash, leftover from a Halloween project a couple of years ago.
