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.
