I went to the Goodwill Clearance Center the other day and bought a ridiculous amount of cute sweaters and shirts to make stuffed animals from. This was my first creation. In fact, this was my first doll ever! I'm still getting used to my sewing machine, but I had fun experimenting.

Her name is Odette and she is made from 90% recycled materials, the only thing new is the buttons used to hold her arms on and her nose button (And the stuffing). Her body is made from an old dress, and her dress and flower are made from the sleeve of a blouse. The accent fabric on her face is from an old jacket, which I also got the buttons for her eyes from.

I love how she turned out. And my little girl adores her  Smiley
