These were fun...

 A couple weeks ago, I was asked by one of my clients to make baby doll carriers for her grand daughters who are 2 and 3 years old. She wanted them for some Madame Alexander dolls...Baby Huggums. I have boys, so I had never heard of these dolls...I went on-line and found a site and they are pretty cute dolls...12 inches tall...so I tried to figure out a pattern in my head that would work to carry the dolls around and also not be too big and bulky for the girls to carry...these are what I came up with...
 I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out...I hope she will be too!
 I made a little flannel blanket to match...dolls probably get cold too...
 I loved both of these fabrics...I think little girls will like them too...and I found lots of matching fabrics to go with them...
 I also made little ruffled pillows to go in each one...I thought the dolls would appreciate a soft place to rest their head...
These were really fun to make...I think I may make some and add them to my Etsy site after I finish all the orders I have...I really like making little girl's things...after having boys...its a nice change!!
Until next time...enjoy the day!!!

Oooh, I don't know who's luckier - the little girls or their dolls! You did a terrific job of finishing, and choosing the fabrics.

Those are ABSOLUTELY adorable!! I only have boys also, so I can understand how fun that must be for you. I'm trying to think of a little girl I could order one for, but all my nieces are grown too! *sigh* so for now I will just admire your beautiful work.

Oh my daughters would have loved these when they were little!

Oh Linda, those are the cutest things I have seen. You captured what every little girl will love.
I raised boys too, and girly things are my favorite to make now too. Luckily I have 7 granddaughters to sew for.
You chose the perfect fabrics. I love your design and the pillow and blankie make them so special.
You rock!!
You must put some on etsy. They will be a hit.
Also loved seeing Don's party.
Glad you suprised him after all the work to keep it a secret. You and your boys really did a good job.

Wonderfully precious Linda....What lucky little girls (and dollies!) You're making me almost want one....But I'd look really silly. Best stick to my antique cradles - at least I can get away with those without too many raised eyebrows... ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

So cute, Linda! I'm thinking Sophia might need one of these..... Happy B'day to Don and get well wishes for Joseph; those two sure look alike! Good job pulling off the party. Surprises are fun, aren't they?
