A new obsession…

Several weeks ago, on another blog, I stumbled across Bit of Whimsy Dolls. You all know that I’m going through this “nesting” – or whatever it is – of wanting to sew and be more crafty, and when I saw Bit of Whimsy’s etsy shop, I was floored.

She sells the most amazing handmade dolls. As I went through each of her items for sale, I noticed that not only did she sell the dolls, but she also sold the patterns to make the dolls yourself!

It was perfect! I quickly purchased a PDF file, and also selected the free file she sometimes offers, so that I could make my dear friend Natalie’s little girl a present this year. To me, a homemade gift is so much more special than something you can buy at your local super center.

I received the file quickly, and opened it right away. I couldn’t believe how easy the steps were to follow. She provides clear, easy directions on how to create each adorable little doll that she offers – and pictures to boot! Let me tell you, I am one who learn by watching, and the pictures made a world of difference to me in following the directions.

Swing by and check out her shop today. She just added a new elephant to her collection, and it is just the sweetest thing! She also offers a pack of PDF files, so if you can’t choose between her adorable creations, you can get a bunch without breaking the bank!

You won’t be disappointed in all that she offers, and her customer service is the best! I highly recommend her, and will definitely be back to her shop again soon! She’s got a bunch more patterns that I can’t wait to try!

    Those are adorable! What exactly is the process in making these, just cutting and hand sewing?

    I cut and machine stitched. I bought the Millie the Monkey PDF and played around with it until I figured out how to machine stitch the entire thing without any hand stitching. Once I got that down, it was really easy to do!

    Angie, I’ll tell you again, I love Lauren’s Millie the Monkey! And yes, handmade gifts are so much more special, which is why I need to get me some skills so bad. I want to make things! LOL!

    Thank you again for such a sweet, sweet gift!
