Happy New Years everyone! I hope that 2013 is a great year.
I posted about knitting Young Elsie at the end of August. My plan was to make 3 dolls for Christmas. It was down to the wire on one doll! I finished a couple of days before Christmas. Not that it was difficult but it was time consuming given all the details.
I loved all the components that went into this doll and I got to try out a lot of techniques to make the various toys and accessories. I needed a bit of stuffing, paper, straws, and cardboard to bring it all together.
This was for my niece and the poor thing was wary of it as she was very tired and the doll is 16″! In time I hope she warms up to it though my sister was thrilled. My kids are each picking a doll out for themselves so I’ll be working on that this year. 🙂
