Elijah's Doll is Finished
I finished Elijah’s baby doll today. In the morning, I went to the Top Stitch for my final lesson for this project. Carrie showed me the best way to attach the hair, hat and body to the head and I was able to finish this afternoon while Elijah took a nap. I trimmed the hair a bit, used a red beeswax crayon to rouge the cheeks a little and presto….a baby doll was born! It’s very far from perfect, but I am so happy I finally decided to attempt this. This is my very first doll ever and it actually looks somewhat like a baby. I love the good feeling you get when you finish a project that is going to be a gift for someone you love. I’m so excited to give Elijah his “Baby” Christmas morning. I can hardly wait!
