WOYWW - dolly bags!

 

Good morning all!!
Well today you can enjoy a tidy table with my little scrapbox dollies and the lucky few who have been chosen to go in my new bags.
I decided to use up some of my felted wool jumpers to make little girls' bags with a tiny pocket on the side - just big enough to hold one of my dollies.
The rest of the dollies are waiting patiently in their basket.

Here are some close-ups.


Cute!

I will pop them in our blog shop - Sisters Crafty Creations - if I manage to sell them, I shall buy some nice fleecy fabric to back the quilt I am going to make for the scheme Jo has set up  Lillybo Quilts. A lovely idea and one I am sure Annie and I will enjoy supporting.

Have a good week.
Join in our blog hop with Julia in her Stamping Ground they are such a great bunch.

x Jo

I just adore those little dolls in their cutesy little bags! Great idea.
If you can't get it cheaply, I can send you some fleece if you would like me to. Janet (fairythoughts WOYWer saw the throws ... here's her comment...
(just a quick note about fleecy backing ... I brought a fleece throw in Store 21 today it cost £6 and measured 2.5 x 1.8m so works out much cheaper than buying the fabric, mine was a lovely red colour. I think it will be big enough to make about 4 quilts (it actually measure 2.6 x 2m.) they also has smaller ones for £3. I am sure that other shops like Primark, Matalan etc will also have similar throws or blankets offering good value. )
so you could share one with Annie. I don't want people already kind enough to make them to go to great expense!

lots of love Jo x

How cute are your little girl bags. I know a few big girls who would like them too!!! I think I have felted a jumper or two in my time - I wish I had kept them now! Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 42

You’re always coming up with such wonderful ideas Jo. It’s a shame I don’t have anyone to buy one for because those little dollies in their bags are so cute.

Happy Crafting!

Your little dolly bags are just so cute, what little girl wouldn't want one? Looking forward to seeing your quilt, I just hope mine finds a home before all the proper sewers send theirs in!! LOL ;) Annette #18

Beautiful idea for the dolly girls! I love the sweaters being repurposed and made into felted bags. Too bad my GD are so young (1-3) or I would buy a couple. Hannah has decided though that she has to taste everything and Teresa is a terror right now! Have fun with your quilts! Thanks for stopping by my desk! Have a great week and thanks for sharing.

Cute dollies, they look very comfy in their pockets! Hope they do well for you :)
