Phoebe’s new doll

I made this doll for Phoebe this week. Very inspired by the Hilda Cowham illustrations from last week. I really want this book!

Next I think I'm going to try to make her a blackberry fairy doll. These mop tops remind me of Phoebe.

    WOW! She is absolutely gorgeous!! A friend of mine has recently challenged me to make a doll for her but I’ve never made a doll (lol…and I haven’t used a sewing machine in years!). I wish I had your skills, Hillary. :)

    Amaazing!
    Also, that idea of the BlackBerry Fairy? You should make patterns for some of Baker’s beauties! Imagine having 12 or so fairy dolls inspired by Baker! And you!

    Beautiful doll. I can’t wait to see your Blackberry Fairy doll. I’ve loved her illustrations for many years – back when I stumbled upon one of her books before her renewed popularity.

    She is the bug’s ear.
    I love seeing all your projects, but I must admit partiality toward your precious dolls. I just love them. They each have such character and personality.
    I have one of your patterns and can not wait to create one for my daughter. It will be my very first attempt at doll making.

    Great job Hillary!! Her hair is amazing! You have such a gift.
    I’ve also loved the flower fairies.
    Even more flower fairy inspiration can be found here…

    I absolutely love this doll. She is gorgeous. The hair and the outfit.
    The blackberry fairy sounds wonderful as well. I call my daughter the blackberry thief because the first year she walked she used to hide in the ones in our front yard and eat and eat the blackberries
