the making of Harriet Pink

Ok so sewing is my favourite ‘thing’. Ever. I absolutely adore turning cloth and trimmings into something. If I had oodles of free time you would most likely find me making something or other, I don’t mind whether it is clothing, furnishings, accessories or in this case a stuffed toy. Today I am not sharing a tutorial, no instructions nor tips, just a little photo diary of a gift for my niece of a doll called Harriet Pink…



After a few months packed carefully inside boxes and baskets my fabrics have re surfaced and it is a little bit like Christmas in my new dining room cupboards. The Christmas before last I made a doll named Talulah Blue for little J and she has become a favourite (so I am told!) here is a friend to keep her company. I cut her from calico and printed cottons, her hair is a chunky pink wool. She has an embroidered heart shaped mouth and sleepy eyes…



Choosing colours and cloth for a dress and hat…



Her belt is a tie from an old tunic of mine. I love to re-purpose old clothing…



Patterned tights and a pixie hat tied with grey cotton…



I enjoy the wrapping almost as much as the making…



Hello, my name is Harriet Pink (I’m off to live in Germany.)


A post partly for me, a makers diary, and partly for my sister. If you enjoy it too then thats just perfect!
