Do you know what I'm really really good at? Conceiving and starting projects. I have notebooks full of ideas. Lots of ideas. I constantly send myself emails with links to cool tutorials and projects from across the interwebs. And I start projects with gusto. But following through? Not so much. I get distracted by new ideas. I get frustrated by the speed bumps and less fun parts of projects. As a result, for every finished project you see, there are multiple unfinished projects lingering in the background. Such was the case with these poor dollies.
These are destined to be gifts. Originally, I had a blonde girl and the brown haired girl. But when I was turning the body of the brunette right-side out, I pricked my finger on a rogue pin and got a tiny dot of blood on her face. So she had to be washed which resulted in shrinkage and a bit of fuzz. She's still completely cute, but I just wasn't comfortable gifting her alongside her larger, unfuzzy, blonde friend. So I cut another blonde. And so with arms and legs attached (except for the third one), they languished on the stool for weeks. But then last weekend, I had a burst of energy and sat down and finished them. I'm smitten with them, and think each seems to have her own personality.
I really love this pattern from Wee Wonderfuls.
I highly recommend it.
