My Dolly has a new diaper...

I drew the pattern up myself and then looked through my sewing patterns for clothes for her. I have all the pieces cut out so tomorrow I will make her something to wear. Today is house cleaning and laundry; I'm about halfway done - keep getting sidetracked with the Internet.

I cleaned her up with baking soda and warm water as that is the instructions I found on the Interenet for cleaning vinyl dolls. Scott fixed her eye so she doesn't look like "Chucky" anymore... THANK GOODNESS! I'm thinking a pretty pink dress with small flowers would suit her just fine. 

Perhaps I can find a basket for her to sleep in at the store on Wednesday. Crazy... a nearly 47 year old woman playing with dolls but I believe she deserves the attention.

OH! I must share that the black spot on the bottom of her left foot is where I used to give her shots with sewing needles.


  1. Becky, my mom is in her fifties and she loves porcelain dolls. So you're in good company. I"m glad you chose a cloth nappy for your dolly :) :) She never looked like "chucky". I rememb er that movie and that doll scared me..Your dolly is much prettier ;) :) I can't wait to see what cute outfit you sew for her ;) :) Thanks for sharing your memories. Speaking of which, I need to "google" how to clean my fabric stuffed kitty cat...Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  2. Hello Heather - Thanks for dropping in again today. If I work up the nerve to wash the little dog and re-stuff him I'm going to get something for delicate washables and then very careful wash him in the bathroom sink. I'm afraid he would go all to pieces in the washer.

  3. I'm looking forward to seeing the dress. My 9-yr.-old niece wants to sew and got a sewing machine for Christmas. She made a quilt in Girl Scouts and donated it. Now I want to show her how to make doll clothes, so this will be interesting! Maybe we will do a doll quilt. :) I think your dolly wants a quilt, too. ;)
