One of J's kindy teachers has just gone on Maternity Leave with a (very unexpected) baby. She is an amazing teacher and the entire community will miss her while she is away. J's kindy - and our neighbourhood - is in a very rough area, and she manages to be well respected, and well connected across the community here, which is no mean feat.
So as a little gift for her, I made a little baby doll. The pattern is from Rhythm and Rhyme, and I've made it several times before. They are such soft, squishy dolls, and really easy to make up.
Artistic shot from P - in which you can see my terrible sewing up of the bottom of the doll. We were out at an appointment and I didn't have any red thread.
