It's bee a difficult couple of years with my family. I haven't see my niece in a couple years and after a discussion my mom she told me how much my niece missed me. So what started out as an idea to make a miniature me turned into a little Poppet who soon told me her name was Olivia.

I made her a quick mini kilt and oxford shirt (which I'm not thrilled with, but for a couple hours and no pattern I'll take it) for Christmas. Her birthday is this month so I made her some more clothes because my sister told me she's been putting her American Girl's clothes on her. Cheesy

So I made her 10 dresses from Ghilie's pattern all from "scraps" I had in my bin.

The pieces that I didn't have enough fabric to make the whole dress from I winged a crocheted top by basing it off the bodice pattern and then filling in as I needed to get the right size and shape.

The whole lot of them.

My niece with Olivia on Christmas.

Her ears were my favorite part. I just took the cat ears part of the pattern and folded them in on themselves. Cheesy

She's very well loved. Apparently my niece reads to her every day.

Thanks everyone for your kind words.
