In a small village in the north of France (not far from the ocean),
lives a little girl in a big buttercream house.
She has blue eyes, pink cheeks & long blonde braids.
Every day she dances & sings as she plays happily in the garden.
When it is cold or wet, she stays indoors by the fire reading
her books or playing with her dolls.
I am one of her dolls.
My name is Miss Arabella Doll.
I came to live with her on her 5th birthday
& I love her as much as she loves me.
Often, she holds me tight & tells me her dreams.
She hopes to be a princess one day.
Sometimes, she dresses me up warmly
& takes me for a walk to “get some air”.
My little girl likes to design special outfits for me like scarves & skirts.
She’s hoping to learn more about sewing so that she can
create a wonderful dress like the one Cinderella wears to the ball.
Her Mama makes me clothes, too.
She knits me sweaters & hats.
My wardrobe is getting bigger all the time!
My girl changes my clothes almost as often as she changes her own.
Once in a while,
she pretends to give me a bath
(luckily, she’s never really put me in the water
because I don’t think I’d like that)
& she usually remembers to put me to bed.
Not too long ago, my girl’s Mama decided to bring another doll into our family.
Her name is Miss Brighit Doll.
She looks a bit like me but has long, bright hair
that reaches all the way to her feet!
My little girl says that it is red because she is Irish.
We both think it is very pretty
& fun to make into different hairstyles.
Her eyes are sea blue almost turquoise.
Her favourite thing to do is sit by the fire & fingerknit.
We’ve become the best of friends & like to have elegant tea parties.
Sometimes, we get to eat at the breakfast table with everybody else.
We even visited Paris with our little girl & her family!
Dolls like us have been made by Mama’s for
their children for years & years!
Long before there were toy stores, many children had a
special doll to love & care for.
Mama’s understood that looking after us taught
their children how to love & care for others.
We hope more Mama’s & other special people who love children,
will make more & more dolls.
Every child needs a doll – made with love in every stitch.
Would you like to make a
beautiful doll for your little one(s)?
YOU can make a doll like this (it is easier than you think!)
So many mothers dream of creating a beautiful heirloom doll for their child & yet, don’t. Everybody has their own reasons why they haven’t done it yet, but the two I hear the most are –
“I bought a doll kit with some instructions but they aren’t clear enough”
” I don’t know how to sew well enough”.
I’d love it if every one who has ever wanted to make a doll like this could do it.
That’s why I created The Doll Lessons.
In these simple lessons you’ll :
- see exactly how to make your doll ( with super-detailed videos),
- use simple patterns to cut & sew (print them & start right away)
- have a complete list of tools & materials you’ll need (it’s only a few)
- & get answers to any questions that may pop into your head along the way.
