Finished by Friday - 2

Welcome to Finished by Friday 2!
This week has flown by.
I have had a busy time but managed to squeeze in as much crafting as possible.
I have to admit to a new addiction....


These are my little scrapbox dollies that I have been making for Christmas.
I found the idea on a lovely blog called Flutterby Patch
They are supposed to be tiny dollies made with oddments from your scrap bag.
Well, mine have sort of evolved into quite fancy little dollies.
They have smart little costumes with arms and legs made from co-ordinating beads.
Each one has a ribbon hanging loop so they can hang on the Christmas tree - or anywhere else where a little dolly would look cute.
I still have a few more to finish and then I will decide what to do with them.
Maxine suggested displaying them on a painted branch.

My other little makes were for the twins.
I found a pattern for little slippers so made a pair for each of them.

And then I made a cosy little frock for Lexi - unfortunately it turned out to be too large so I am now making a smaller version. She will grow into it soon, so it won't be wasted!

That's it for this week - see you next week.
Thanks for calling in - I love to hear what you think.
x Jo

Looking at your pictures takes me back to my childhood, we made scrap dolls, Mum was always making shoes and clothes for dolls from the scrap bag.
And little teddies.
Wow I really did have an awesome childhood when I look back on it.
Thank you for reminding me!
:o) xx

Love all the knitted and sewn projects. forgot to say it was lovely to hear from a fellow Boyes' fan. A year after my husband died we went to Scarborough to buy fish and chips and to remember him and then I couldn't resist a trip to Boyes. Sandy Dallas

Love the dollies!! They're very cute :)

Please may I ask what pattern you used for Lexi's dress? I think it's a lovely design and would like to make one for the daughter of a good friend of mine. Thank you :D
Hugs, LLJ xxxx

Such cute wee slippers! Love the little dollies. They look so good together. I can't see separating them; they'll be lonely!
