Two down, one to go!

I told the girls I would make them Molly Monkeys before Christmas.  So I’ve gotten around to doing two of them… one more to go – that one is going to be a pirate monkey for Karis.
The original Molly Monkey for Sierra.
A Ballerina Molly for Ruby – I think she needs a bow on her head, so I’ll probably add one.

And I’m working on Karis’ flower girl dress and the fabric is heavier so I’m going to have to hand sew a basting stitch to gather… grrr!

Slowly working on my to-do list

It is slowly dwindling… would be even faster if I quit seeing cute things online and deciding to make them! LOL!
This morning I found a blog (clicking from others that I read, really have no clue how I got there!)
Dolly Donations
So I called the girls over, and told them about it, and then we did 4 hours of ‘Family and Consumer Science’ studies today ;P
Here is what we ended up with:
Sierra and Ruby picked out the fabric and each stuffed an arm and a leg.  They helped me stuff the body, and then Sierra helped with the shoes and bows.  Karis and Sierra watched me paint the face, and of course, I did all the sewing!  They are so proud – and now each of them want to make their own dollies.  But this one is headed to Haiti!

I just couldn't stop at one - they are too too adorable and I know they will be loved!
