New Dollies....New Pattern....
First up...my new pattern #139 Krista Lynn. She is a combination of 2 other dolls. I recently made a few custom creations for my scarecrow doll Sydney. Sydney has rope hair and wears a hat....and once I finished the last one...I was looking at her and thought...hmmmm....with a different head....and some hair...she would make one beautiful Annie. And thus...the birth of Krista Lynn. She is 18" of pure cuteness!! I had recently made a custom breast cancer awareness doll for another customer who wanted pink hair on that doll....so...Krista Lynn recieved some of that remaining pink hair that matched really well with this fabric I found on the clearance rack...which I usually never check....but for some reason that day...I did and found these two fabrics that really worked well of each other. She is listed and up for grabs on Ebay. The pattern is on my selling blog, Etsy, Ebay and PatternMart. And I finished another of the Be Mine Annies, but done in pinks, last nite. She is listed and up for grabs on Ebay. I was all out of the doilys for her collar....so I made one out of warm and natural with a blanket stitch all the way around it. I actually think I like the handmade collar best! Wish I would have done that for the pattern. I wanted to give her brown hair...but I just couldn't resist using red hair with pink clothing. It truly is a myth that redheads shouldn't wear pink. Here are some links to view more photos or patterns.

I am mother to 2 young adults. My daughter is 28 and gave me my 1st grandchild on July 2, 2008...Brody. She is currently pregnant with another grandson. My son is 24 and gave me my 2nd grandchild, named Austin who was born April 14th 2009. I am married to "Prince Charming" (LOL) and have been for almost half my life. I enjoy making dolls...I like to call them "country Prim" because they are more cutesy than primitive...yet stained like prims. I have been sewing and creating for the past 17 years and have come a long way since the days of my first floppy eared bunny. I have had a scarecrow featured as one of many on the cover of Country Marketplace Magazine...which is no longer in existance. I have been in Better Homes and Gardens Crafters Showplace Magazine and once had a sales rep who took many of my items to gift shows and sold to craft shops across the United States. I am now trying to figure out the vast world of internet exposure. And this is yet another adventure for me. I can now be found on Etsy and eBay...
