Friends Forever


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.

  19. What a precious gift. It's so hard when friends move away or when you move away. I moved from the States to Canada when I was 12 and my best friends mom packed a surprise for each day of our car ride. It was so thoughtful. Your idea is even better. It will be a treasure for sure.

  23. A great gift! You put a lot of thought into them.

    This summer, writing club students and myself created pop-up dolls. That's not quite the same, but the dolls were fun to make. :-)
