You may remember way back when I shared that I was working on a dress and doll on commission from my mom as a gift for my daughter's birthday. My mom had found an old Goldilocks and the Thee Bears doll that was mine as a girl and asked me to replace the clothing. Its a flip doll - one way is Goldilocks, the other is the Three Bears.
She also asked me to make a dress in matching fabric that Anna could wear. I went with a pillowcase style dress which was super easy and quick. Its been done for some time, and I had a hard time waiting to give it to Anna, because I just wanted to see how it looked on her!
Last week Anna turned four, and my mom presented her with the dress and matching doll. It wasn't exactly love at first sight, but once Anna put on the dress and got compliments and then noticed that the doll looked just like her (blond hair, blue eyes, piggie tails) she was smitten! So much so, that she almost refused to take the dress off that night.
Goldilocks even won a most coveted place in her bed - she's only allowed two stuffed animals and each night its a tough choice! It certainly made this crafty mama feel good to see my hard work so appreciated!
