My four year old was invited to a birthday party, and we're broke so I decided to stash bust a little bit and make the gift. I'm thrilled with how it all turned out.
I made this doll using the Black Apple doll tutorial on Martha Stewart. (Sorry, don't know how to embed the links.) http://www.marthastewart.com/article/black-apple-doll?autonomy_kw=black%20apple%20doll&rsc=header_1
The bassinet was created using this tutorial (which was featured on ucreate this weekend). http://nothingfancyschmancy.blogspot.com/2009/11/baby-doll-bassinet-tutorial.html
Face detail. The tutorial said to paint it on, but I don't have any paint, and I don't trust myself with paint, so I embroidered it instead.
The bassinet. I will definitely be making this again, but I think I will use some interfacing next time so it holds its shape a bit better.
The little lace trim on the hood:
The doll and her blanket. I ran out of time, or she would have had buttons or pockets or something. I think the dress is too plain. I also realize that the arms are on upside down. Oh well. It's cute anyways.
And all together:
