Christmas packages

2 Dec 2011

winter outfit, dress, coat, scarf, hat, shoes and socks

When I was a little girl I dreamed of finding a new doll under the Christmas tree, a new doll with lots of outfits so I could dress her up to my hearts content.


And one year I got not one but two beautiful dolls but with only a couple of outfits each, still I was happy.

 Did you know that back in the 50s and 60s you could buy some dolls dressed or undressed so that your Mum, or gran or auntie or big sister could make clothes just for your new doll, maybe even make a new dress for you as well to match your dolly.

 This year for the first time I offered Christmas package dolls,
 a doll and four seasons of outfits to be ready for Christmas.


 It has been so much fun, and so much hard work making these special dolls.


The first one is on her way to the US, the other two will be ready soon, they don't have so far to go.

I really love this idea and I'll definitely do it again.
