I'm participating in the Dolly Donations dolly drive for an orphanage in Haiti.  You'll find more details on this thread

This is a great way to use those odds and ends in your fabric stash and make someone happy!  I got carried away and made 21 dolls.  I followed the tutorial on the blog for the pattern, but embroidered the faces instead of painting them.

The boys

The dollies are adorable and I know the kids will treasure them. You're wonderful for helping to bring smiles and joy to the children who are going through such a harrowing time. This rocks for many reasons.
