Finally, after hours and hours of work, Marti finished the four LaLaLoopsy hand made dolls for our four granddaughters. Much nicer than the plastic commercially made ones. Evidently, these dolls are all the rage for the under 10 year old girls.
She started out with ordering a pattern from a source on Esty. She printed off the instructions and patterns, bought the material and got to work.
She bought different color yarn for the dolls hair so each granddaughter would have a unique one.
Black buttons for the eyes.
Away Marti went, sewing up a storm.
Arms and legs sewn and beginning to be stuffed with filling.
Working on the doll’s head and face.
Marti found it easier to mass produce all the parts for the dolls at one time. She had to move out from the Journey and up to the Rec Center because she needed more room, a lot more room!
Stuffing and more stuffing.
Mary, one of our fellow volunteers and a master seamstress pitched in to help Marti.
It was nice to have Mary helping because the doll hair took two sets of hands to complete. First the yarn hair had to be pinned in place,
Then each individual hair strand had to be sewn in place.
On to the pigtails, one,
Now for some clothes. Stay tuned.
