Birthday doll

Its the little one's 2nd birthday on Monday, so I couldn't let it pass without making one of her favourite things - a doll! This is one of my little 6 inch dolls and I knitted her a little dress and matching headband out of lovely soft baby yarn.

Just for something different I drew and painted her face on instead of embroidered. Her hair is alpaca and merino wool.
I'm working on a birthday apron too.
I'm starting to feel like I need to cram everything into the next 11 days (yes, 11 days!!!) before the baby arrives. I know I won't even be able to contemplate sitting at the sewing machine for many weeks. This baby, like all my others will be born by caesarian section and I know by now that the recovery is slow.
The softie giveaway is still on!

I am sure your daughter will love her new dolly! And since I am so bad at knitting, I find it always so nice to see knitted doll dresses...

I wish you all the best for the next weeks. Hope you get a lot of support from your loved ones - and I hope you will have a lot of time with a hapåpy little newborn baby to sit in bed and knit little doll and baby clothes while you are recovering from the caesarian section.

Love from Sweden,
