Well I had a go.....

And I did it!!! My very first Poppy Doll!! Made from Raglan Guld (second's) Fabric!! I have to tell you this pattern is BRILLIANT!! I have made a few mistakes but she handles them well. I am sure her head isn't ment to be so square but she is carrying it off brilliantly!! I must thank Kate for providing the fabric for her beautiful smock, paired with her jeans makes the perfect casual outfit!!!



If you are thinking of purchasing this pattern I would highly recommend it. Super simple, easy instructions and with a little bit of creativity you are able to design a complete wardrobe. Its Asha's Birthday soon and this doll is a definite MUST!!

This one's off to Mirabel!!!

She's beautiful Leonie and funnily enough, I think she has a striking resemblance to you. Like mother, like daughter.
