craft hope: project #2 doll

This little island missy will be making her way to the Casa Bernabe Orphanage very soon. 

little island girl

I used the black apple doll pattern and stitched on a little face instead of painting her up.  I used some thrifted washable velvet for her hair instead of the felt and do love how it feels.  (If you ever do this, you'll need to zig-zig over the edge of her hair cut-out, so it doesn't shed everywhere... )  She also needed some flair to go with her Hawaiian print dress, so I gave her a little flower.  Sweet little thing is ready to go play with a very special little girl now.  (As long as I get her in the mail tomorrow!)

I'm so proud of Jade and her work with Craft Hope.   She's got big things happening over there and makes it so easy to reach out and lend a hand.  You don't have to have a blog to contribute, either.  Signups for project #3 will happen soon.  Don't you want to be part of the solution?  xoxo




That little missy is going to make someone very happy.
Just like being your friend makes me very happy. :)


aww shucks... thanks chris! she is so beautiful! thanks for being a part of all of the big happenings, especially while you've got your own big happening coming pretty soon. xoxo


She is a beauty! And since I'm getting ready to move back to Hawaii I have even more love for your little doll! <3


Super cute, Chris!

Since you're posting, I assume you are still pregnant. Did you say the 18th? I think I saw that on FB.


Your doll is so cute...! And what a neat thing this is. I hope project # 3 is something I can do, I'd love to give it a go.
Been thinking about you. It's getting close now...take care!

she's adorable!!! velvet hair is genius!


She's beautiful! I'm pretty sure that's what Monica will look like in Hawaii! I agree, the velvet is genius. I've also seen corduroy, but you have to really work it and sew darts to make it look right. Too much effort!
