I made this bunny doll over the weekend. I have some long overdue items to go out and this is part of one of them. I’ve been wanting for a while to make another doll like Betsy and Daisy but in all one piece. Instead of attaching the stuffed head, arms and legs to the body I’d piece them together flat, sew back to front and then stuff. Here’s the doll body I’ve had laying around for weeks waiting to be improved on.

I decided to try a bunny doll this time around. My first try had her with stretchy fur for the body and that didn’t work out so well with the body having stretch and the cotton dress-body not.

I tried again with some blue flannel and I’m really happy with how she turned out. I dig how this new method looks and I have plans for puppies and kitties and monkeys, we’ll see how sidetracked I get.

We picked the name Judy for her from this list because Tim thought she looked very 50s. I tried something new for her face, a sort of mix of Buttercup and Betsy. I was thinking of making a face like skinny bunny but wanted her to have more personality. I hope it worked.

I made her some little saddle shoes to match her dress.

So which crafty blogger’s little girl is this for? Here’s a clue… her apron 🙂

    Adorable. The apron is great on a doll with a built-in dress, because then you have something to take off and on when you play. I’m guessing it’s for Sadie and I’m guessing she’s going to flip for it!
