Chloe’s Boutique Doll (Retro-Mama)

Sweetheart by Janna © 2011

This Christmas, I decided that I would make my daughter a beautiful softie doll. I scoured the Internet for weeks trying to find the best sewing doll pattern.  What I discovered, however, was that professional-looking, finely-crafted patterns are a dime a dozen when it comes to dolls.  The few misshapen blobs littering my failed sewing patterns basket are a testament to this problem.   You can imagine my excitement when I came across this cute doll pattern for purchase by Retro Mama on Elsy.  I received the pattern the same day as my purchase and was delighted to discover that not only was it filled with colorful pictures but it also had great followable instructions.

Over the course of the next two days, this lovely lady emerged.  My daughter was very interested in what I was making while I sewed away at my small sewing station in my kitchen.  My whole wrap it up as a Christmas present idea became out of the question.  And of course, I could not wait to give it to her.  So this morning, I presented my wonderful daughter with this oh-so-cute doll.  She has been carrying it around ever since.   Seeing her eyes light up with joy was worth it all. 
Thanks Retro-Mama for the delightful pattern.  :-)
