Wee Wonderfuls 'Betsy' Paper Doll Pillow

This book is awesome! It's Wee Wonderfuls: 24 Dolls to Sew and Love by Hillary Lang. I finally finished a project in it for my daughter. It was for her birthday and was only a week late....But she loved it! I made the 'Betsy' paper doll pillow with lots of clothes. It was my first time making little things and I really enjoyed it and accessorizing them with beads and buttons.
Here she is all dressed up by my daughter.
And this is the front of the pillow with the felt doll. The back has a pocket for all the clothes. I did the back differently than the directions since I had a pillow I inserted, instead of stuffing it. I did embroidery for the first time on the doll's face. They weren't difficult stitches, but it's definitely not my favorite thing to do....
My daughter loves pink! The best part of this project is that all the clothes use fabric scraps and I love that!!!!! The book has patterns for all the clothes and you back them in felt so they stick to the felt doll.

Lots of clothes!
The one with the tulle skirt is my daughter's favorite.
My favorite is the pink jumper with the flower button.
Do you think I went a little crazy making them? My husband does. I actually think we need some more. My daughter will be picking out fabrics for them. They were really fun to make! Next up (for Christmas) are lots of Barbie clothes!
You go girl! I think she really liked it. Played for awhile with it. Great book and still lots of other projects I want to do!
