bonneted babies

handmade doll

I played the Phoebe card to get me out of yardwork on Sunday and was able to do a little gift sewing. I made these little wool babies in bonnets dolls for some new babies, Louisa and Frances, and while I was at it, two more for a couple not so new babies, Phoebe and Lydia. I found lots of great bonnet inspiration in one of my new favorite books, here.

    The Provensons are one of my favorites author pairs. I was lucky enough to take my daughters to see their exhibit at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art last year. Truly amazing stuff.
    Looks like your little bonnet babes would translate well into thanksgiving themed dolls too :)

    Your bonnet babies are precious. But I simply had to say I love the art work that the Provensens do. Be sure and check out their other books. The stories are nice, but the pictures give hours of pleasure!

    These are so precious. They would make a darling Thanksgiving ensemble, as little pilgrims (maybe with some little pilgrim fellas, too, in different kinds of hats). Just sayin’.

    These are so cute! I really admire the way you not only come up with such cute ideas, but actually follow through with them and MAKE them! :) I’m not so good with the follow through!

    Please, oh please, make patterns for these lovely ladies. I have a daughter and a few nieces that NEED these little friends. And, well, I am just not smart enough to create a pattern myself! Great work. And love the *baby card*. Use it often myself…

    Pilgrims in their Easter finery :-) I’d gush about how very cute they are, but on this blog that somehow seems like stating the glaringly obvious!

    I can’t even explain the feeling I get when I come to your blog and discover the likes of bonneted babies and such. I guess I’ll have to settle for a two word description: TOO CUTE! =)
