The Princess and the Pea (continued)

On Friday I rode down to my local library and spent a lazy hour looking at doll making books searching for the perfect doll to make as part of the Princess and the Pea gift I will be making for my niece. I settled on "The Creative Book of Dolls" and in particular this doll is what I had in mind although I will have to make her a bit smaller than the pattern suggests so that she will fit into her box bed.

These yarn dolls will also work as a seperate gift for her and I am going to make her a collection as well. I think I will give her the yarn dolls for her birthday and the Princess for Christmas.


  1. Hi Maria! Just thought I'd let you know "I'm watching" LOL! Will be keeping an eye on the progress of the "Princess & The Pea". I'll be trying to make all presents this year too. Keep up the great work. Love your blog! Mazza xx

  2. Hi Mazza, I would love to know what you think of my project. Also, if you have any suggestions along the way as I progress I would also love to hear them. I am going to be handing over the gift reluctantly at the end I think as I'm sure I am going to be falling in love with it LOL

  3. Hi Maria, that's probaly true but when you see your niece really enjoying playing with it .you will be really happy you did !
