Katie Morag sock doll

Just a quick post to share my latest little sock doll with you.

My niece is a teacher (the one expecting twins!) and she wanted a little doll to use with the Katie Morag stories for next half term. I told her I would help reduce her work load where I can!

So, here she is..... Little Katie Morag complete with her own leather post bag. I made her a little cotton bag with her picture on the front and popped her in to take to Annie's. M was there marking test papers and she was thrilled with her new doll!! (We are easily pleased!)
I made her skirt fabric on my embellishing machine. I didn't have any green/yellow tartan fabric so I just created some with felt and yarn!. I even stitched a silver kilt pin on!!

Ok - now I must get down to work. I have a little pink Christening heart to make.
Have a great day everyone.
The sun is shining - its a perfect day here!

Oh my goodness Twiglet ..I love Katie Morag. Especially the Tiresome Ted tale. All those treasures she finds whhen he's washed back onto the beach....fabulous memories. I hope her class enjoy the stories as much as my three did..That doll is gorgeous. You may have to make a few more incase of arguments though, don't you think ;D !

Oh, that take's me back. Used to read Katie Morag with mine when they were tots - would have loved your doll back then too! Used to try to do a Scottish accent when I read it to them - eeek!

Hi, I wondered if you would be interested in making Katie Morag dolls for people to buy? I am a teacher and we are studying Katie Morag next term and I would love to buy one. If you are interested, please reply. Thank you.
