Giveaway and New Pattern Release!


Hi lovelies!  Sorry it's been so long since my last post!  I've been working on a new doll pattern and to celebrate the release of the pattern, I'm having a GIVEAWAY!!
This sweet little fox is looking for a new home, could it be yours?
This adorable fox doll is one of five new animal dolls that will be featured on my newest pattern, the Woodland Animal Dolls.  She's dressed in a to-die-for Liberty of London print dress and I've made a soft wool coat for her out of pure merino felt.  Her eyes are hand drawn and her little snout is hand embroidered.  She stands about 11 inches tall and is as sweet as can be!  I almost can't bear to part with her! ;)
If you'd like a chance at winning her, please:

Good luck everyone!
 Ok, so here's a little more about the new pattern, which is now available in my Etsy shop!

The dolls are made from fabric (felt for the little coat) and they're machine sewn.
The pattern was designed to allow you create five different animal dolls. The head/body and the arms and legs are the same for each doll, but the ear shapes will define what type of animal you’d like to make. Which will you choose? A charming mouse, a playful pony, a dreamy fox, a fanciful fawn or a shy bunny, or better yet, why not make one of each?! :)
I’ll show how you can create different types of snouts and whiskers to suit each animal and I’ve also included patterns to make a sweet little dress and a smart coat to complete her ensemble.
I've also provided two options for making the doll’s eyes. They can be hand drawn onto your doll with pencil then outlined and filled in with a black felt marker, or they can be hand embroidered on.
Finished dolls measures between 12 - 14 inches tall, depending on the animal.
✼ Suitable for sewists with a basic knowledge of machine sewing, hand sewing and embroidery.
♥ Please remember that you are welcome to sell ready-made Gingermelon items in your own shop. I just ask that you please offer GINGERMELON design credit in any written description, thank you! ♥
