I started making this doll like 7 months ago and with so many projects going it kind of got pushed to the side.  Well I came across the bag this morning in my craft closet and thought she finally needed to be put together and made whole.

And once my daughter caught sight of her, well I could'nt get her finished fast enough for her.  So here she is finally finished:

I need alittle work on my faces, the asleep side looks like shes angry.  But my daughter loves her.

Thanks for looking Smiley

Thanks everyone  Cheesy

I actually got the pattern from a book my mother passed down to me its Annies Needlecraft Showcase Doll-Ightful Ideas which was published in 1982.  My mother gave me all her annies attic books, I pretty much have 2 totes full of them and I love them.  When I was a little girl I remember making things from these books and each time I sit down and look through them I find something new to make.

This doll was very simple to make, and I'm not sure what the pattern laws are but I would be more than willing to send a copy of he pattern to anyone (if thats allowed) this little doll would make any little girl happy.

I plan on making a few more for christmas gifts.

Ha ha - she's cute!  I haven't seen one of them for ages but I think they're a great idea.  I like her hair!

So much to make, so little time!

This is adorable!  I used to have a topsy-turvy doll (about a million years ago  Roll Eyes ), and haven't seen one in ages.  I'd love a pattern, if you can send!
