What should you do when your really good friend over the last year is going back home to California?
The answer is to get your Mum to make you and her as little dolls, so you can go with her.
My daughter stitched the little bag, where both the dolls can live together. By now the little dolls are in California.
I tried to be fairly accurate with their school uniforms and hair styles, as girls can wear either skirts or trousers at their school. Both girls are much prettier than they turned out. I don't know what it is with my dolls and fairies, but they always end of a little frumpy. I do love little one-off projects like this. The basic dolls are my fairy/mermaid pattern, with a few adaptions. It was so nice to knit the dolls and clothes and not worry about writing down what I have done.
