Well, Hello Dolly!

Little Princess #2's "thoughtful gift" I created for her birthday...
a little dolly...
(and my very first attempt at doll making-don't look too closely!)

with brown eyes just like hers...

a pretty posy in her hair...

a lovely pink dress gathered with a tiny bow...

and of course, a hug and kiss stitched in...
(cause she was made with lots and lots of love!)

she spent her first night tucked gently beside little Princess #2...
grasped in her little hand,
and proudly given the name-


Oh, how my heart just melted!
I do believe the "thoughtful gifts" are my very favorite!

Have a happy day!
Many Blessings!


  1. she is so sweet with her pretty flower in her hair! i think this is such a great concept. i love that you call them thoughtful gifts and that the kids do to. you are always so full of inspiration friend!

  2. Olivia is so sweet! We thought of her last night during Katie's birthday dinner! Please give her a hug for us! I am so impressed, Jill!!! You did an amazingly darling job! Lori

  3. I love this little doll! I have been making felt owls and wish I had the nerve to try a doll- maybe I will. Yours (hers :) is sooooo cute!

  4. Awww. Each of my Grandmothers made a doll for me when I was a girl. I still have them. What a beautiful, lovely Olivia-doll you made. A treasure I know!

  5. That is the sweetest, cutest dolly EVER! Love, love, love it!

  6. That is the sweetest doll did great for you first one ;) I love the 'xo' on her bum, tee hee...what a cute touch!

  7. This is so precious, and I'm completely smitten. I'd love to make one. I don't know if you used a pattern, but if so, would you be willing to share where you found it?

    The fabric for the dress is wonderful, and she has the sweetest look on her little face. Adorable!

  8. I love your blog! all the way from South Africa! You are part of the reason I started my own!


  9. Just discovered your blog (through livingingrace). Love the way you did the hair for "Olivia".


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a little note! I truly treasure each one!
Lots of love and many Blessings!- Jill
