Meet Girl-ee and Girl-ee

A few months ago the sweet gals from Simple Simon & Co sent me the most thoughtful gift in the mail…two kits to make these cute little dolls. As you can imagine my girls were so excited to make them. Each of my girls took turns sewing on my lap. They ended up sewing all most all of their dolls with the exception of the rounded edges and top stitching. It was the perfect little sewing project to do with the girls. They were quick to make and the end result is something they love more then anything else right now…dolls. It was amazing to see the excitement in their eyes once their dolls were finished. As you can imagine there were lots of screeches and squeals! Then they grabbed their dolls and they were off to play.Quickly the dolls became Doll-ee and Doll-ee.Thanks again Liz and Elizabeth for the sweet gift! My girls LOVE their Doll-ees and I LOVED the time spent together making them!

  8. Wow, I love the simplicity! This is perfect to sew along with a little girl. It’s adorable. What a good job they did. Good on you too, having the patience to let them sit and work on your lap at the machine. It’s priceless.

  9. I made the brown haired kit and it is so cute! I would recommend replacing the felt hair piece with real wool felt because they sent cheap felt and it got all polled up after my daughter played with it.
