Black Apple Dolls

A friend of mine introduced me to these dolls, and since I've been wanting to make dolls for my girls, I had to give them a try. The template and instructions are found on Martha Stewart, and you can see various styles and such on the Black Apple website.

I thought they were pretty easy to make, especially since I have so many calico prints to use from various quilting projects. I just had to pick up some muslin and felt. It probably took me 90 minutes to make one doll. I've been thinking that if I were crazy, it would be fun to make enough dolls to decorate a Christmas tree with. We'll see how crafty I'm feeling!
