Although these sweet dolls are enjoyable to have around, part of the fun for me is in creating things for them.
Here's Mr Magoo in a new pair of shorts I made him. He had been sitting around in a sweater and wool hat when our first hot summer day finally hit. I had to take pity on him!
I used a basic Kelly doll pattern for the shorts, taking wider seam allowance so they would fit a little smaller. I think for the next pair I'll use a different construction method allowing more of it to be done on the sewing machine, and I'll lower the waistline
Ms Muffet's outfit was made a while back, before she arrived. I'm glad it actually fits! The weather turned a bit cool again today so she threw her new, cashmere cardigan on over the sundress.
I've also been working on Ms Muffet's cottage/studio. The stucco has now been done and painted. Next step is shingling the roof, I think.
