Wow that is a very fun package. I have to say that looks like more than 10 points to me. Also looks like some fine craftstermanship!

I received today! No pics yet. I opened the package and everything is wrapped separately so I want to take a pic of that first. So I haven't opened anything yet. I guess my dolly should be part of the party so it'll have to wait until later. Maybe tomorrow...

Here are the lovely things that Sara received from Sactownsue!

A very pretty dress (I love the bright, cheerful colors) with a matching headband:



The dress also came with a cute matching hat:



An adorable sailor suit:



Last but not least, a bed! Complete with blanket and pillow:



Sara looks very comfy:



Thank you so much for all the wonderful stuff!  Grin

I figured such a drowsy baby needed a special bed. I wanted to make her a lot more stuff but had to draw the line somewhere. I also wanted to make some PJ's and tights and...

Did you notice the bed has a special surprise?

I still need to upload the pics of the stuff you sent for Chelsea. She loves it all. So do I.

LOL I didn't notice! Good thing you mentioned it! It turns into a bag. Very cool.  Grin  I'll have to post another picture of it "transformed" later.

Here it is as a bag. It's so pretty! I love the ribbon.

Yep! So now she has a safe dust free room of her own. And if she goes on a sleep over she is ready.

I noticed after I had everything done that the sailor dress and hat and the tote bag all have a 50s retro look to them. Not intentional. But I am a child of the 50s and I guess it shows in some of my creations.

What a treasure you have, Jaded_Jenn!  Your doll is amazing!  I love the sailor suit!  It is so nice to dress up old dolls! How old is your doll?  Do you have a thread somewhere on the history of this doll?

I don't think i announced yet that I received! My dolls got some great stuff! I haven't taken pictures because my camera battery was dead, and one item needs the snaps sewn on before I take pictures of her wearing it! (we were both concerned about fit issues and included snaps to sew on ourselves)

Here is a link to another thread with a picture of me and my doll : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=250947.msg2795815#msg2795815

I've had her since I was 2 years old. My Godmother gave her to me for Christmas. That will make her 25 this year!

Awww that sailor suit is so darling! What a great idea to have outfits made for an old cherished dolly!

And mom2blu, in answer to your question about my Ellowyne Wilde, she takes fantastic pictures. Seriously, she is pretty in person but she lights up in front of a camera! In these pics she is actually leaning against the railing on my balcony. She comes with a stand with a clear base though, here's a pic of her on her stand with the suitcase:
