Meet Sunny!

Standard

 Sun 2 Sunny is a doll that I modeled after my sweet, gorgeous daughter!  Sunny is a nickname that one of our family friends gave her when she was a baby, but it never really stuck.  It should’ve though, because she IS the sunshine in my life! 

Anyway, a loooooooong time ago, when she was receiving her First Communion, I made her a white dress, with a little short jacket, and a little crown of flowers.   This little doll, while not an exact replica, is reminiscent of her on that particular day.  She looked more like an angel than anything else.

Here’s a close-up picture of “Sunny’s” face.  Notice the flowered headband.  It matches the bouquet she’s holding.

I’m having so much fun designing making my own little dolls!  I have decided next to try making a ballerina doll.  I think she will be much bigger and taller than Sunny and Danielle. I am planning to go back to using yarn for hair, just because it is so much easier to work with, to style, and it comes in such a variety of colors. 

Eventually, I will put these patterns on my blog too, so that if you are inclined you can make your own little dolls!  Black Cat 2
