It was just meant to be a little diversion, a break from the norm, an afternoon project.....

My mind is always comming up with new things it wants me to make, and though I've made this little doll in felt before, I decided to do a cloth body version, with an embroidered face. My favourite hand-dyed felt was used to create her "hairstyle", and then I made a little dress with ruffled sleeves and hem. Tiny shoes peek out from beneath, and I decided to try my hand at a little grass green, felt berret.

Please meet Camilla, a new Lil' Dumpling Doll! She's short and sweet and measures about 7 inches tall. She'll soon have some sisters to play with, each with a different hairstyle and outfit, so please check back to see their progress!!

This dear Lil' Dumpling took a LOT longer than I'd anticipated! I began her journey on Sunday, and after many adjustments, tweaks, pleads and curses, she emerged this afternoon.

I knew immediately, that even though Camilla was one "ROYAL" pain in the butt (no pun intended:), she turned out darn cute anyway!
