I went and had a rummage and there she was - all packed up snug from when we last moved. It must have been at least 5 years ago that I started her.
Guess how much I had to do to finish her? It took HOURS*. I had to tidy her hair, iron her top, slip stitch her mitten tops down and put two press studs on her dress. Why did I leave that unfinished for so long? Who knows.
Anyway - I thought she would be a nice little friend for Chelsea. She is a Nekomimi (cat ear) doll made from this pattern. She is not quite as cute as the inspiration doll - I didn't get the cheeks and chin quite right - but I still think she's very sweet. I recall she took long and painful hours to make - although now I have her out, it is possible I may make her a friend at some point.
|Cat paw boots - snuggy and cute|
|And a tail for balance, like all good cats.|
|That's enough now. Where's Chelsea?|
Off to the quilt cabinet she goes. Although Princess has already spotted her and sobbed with abandon when I informed her that she was mummy's doll and only able to be played with on special occasions by very very good girls.
"But I AM a very very good girl, Mummy" *sob, hiccup*
*hint - sarcasm.
