A Finish and a WIP......

For those of you who do not follow my doll making blog or my Facebook page I thought I'd show you my latest effort. This is the first doll I've made since last August 2014. When I looked back and saw that I was a bit shocked.

I made this doll for an online challenge with a Facebook doll club I belong to called Cloth Doll Artistry. The challenge was called "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend".

We were to make a cloth rabbit at least 20 inches tall and dressed for a charity event.
I used a pattern by Teresa Pietras called "Lilly: A Fantasy Rabbit". She turned out much better than I expected as I was a bit rusty in the doll making department.

A tiny bit of bling:)

I've also started another CQ block for CQJP2015. A tad behind schedule but I hope to get caught up and finish all 12 eventually.

This one is in shades of brown and peach/orange primarily.

Today I thought I'd participate in The Needle & Thread Network WIP Wednesday link up. I haven't done that in ages.

Come on over and visit.  Take care:)


  1. Your doll is adorable, especially with your touch of bling!

    CQ block for CQJP2015 is very nice, I hope you continue to post photos of your progress!

  2. Oh, she is absolutely beautiful Mary Ann.... great job! Love her colours too...

  3. What an elegant doll! I love that you made her dress actually quite plain so that her bling would show off to the best advantage (and I love her ears!!).

  4. Congratulations, Mary Ann! Haven't seen you here for a while. It is nice to see your work again. I am very jealous of your being able to do dolls! My right hand has given out so my dollmaking is scuppered! Great Fantasy Rabbit! Love her:-)

  5. You know already that I love that doll! Your new block is lovely. I struggled to find a proper word. Lovely is appropriate because the fabrics work so well together and your stitching and thread color selection really enhance them. The bright color just makes the whole picture pop.

  7. She's stunning and I love the colors you chose.

  8. Beautiful doll, just love the colours and her pretty bracelet and perfect legs.

  9. She'a a beautiful and adorable doll! I love you idea. Great jbo!

    Merry Christmas
    Xx, Carol
