A good reason...

... to leave it to the professionals!

What was I thinking???  Well, I was thinking I could try and make a doll for my first (and only) niece.  But, oh my, I didn't think I could make one this ugly!

So, I think I will leave the doll making to Jennie at A Little Vintage who makes gorgeous, gorgeous dolls!   She will even custom make dolls using your child's special clothing.  In my case, I'm still looking for something to send to be made into an Elijah doll - such a cool idea, don't you think?

And this one can live in the hall cupboard!
