The Sister Dolls

A blog we love to visit is 

When thinking about Christmas 
gifts for my two little granddaughters, 
aka the Sweetie Girls, I wanted to 
make something special for them. 
I remembered seeing a post that 
Rhissanna did giving a tutorial 
and pattern to make one of 
her fabulous dolls. Oh how 
I LOVE her dolls! They're full of 
personality plus!! 

So I got to work and this is what 
I created ... 

"The Sister Dolls".

Meet "Little Sister"...

and "Big Sister" 

I followed Rhissanna's instructions 
which were very good. 
This is definitely an advanced project! 
(Let me put it this way, Rhissanna is 
entitled to every single penny she 
gets for the dolls she makes!!) 

My youngest son, Dad to the 
Sweetie Girls, is a fabulous artist 
and did the faces on the dolls for me. 
They look very much like the girls. 
I was thrilled! 

 Big Sister

Little Sister

I used fabrics and trims I already had in 
my "stash" and only purchased 
some yarn, sparkly beads 
and little silk flowers. 

The older Sweetie Girl loves Fuchsia so I 
thought it would be fun to give her doll 
vivid fuchsia yarn hair. Younger Sweetie 
Girl loves Hot Pink so she received a 
hot pink "do". They both loved it. 

The Sister Dolls love to  
pose for photos... 

and dance 

and just have fun together! 

The Sisters love whirling and spinning! 

The dolls live at my house and are 
always waiting for them on the 
nightstand between their beds. 

Thanks for coming by to see 
the "Sister Dolls" creations!
They're so happy to meet you!  

Stop by to visit Rhissanna's blog
You'll be amazed at her dolls!!

  1. Hi Edie, WOW The Sister Dolls are fabulous. I love everything about these darling girls. The hair is fantastic and how you got it to flow just right. Love the dresses and all the trims. You really are a great artist in designing something so special for your grands. Your son got the faces just perfect too. I know your little ones will enjoy these beauties when they come to visit for all times. Plus they will become a keepsake for the future. You really creating two gems with your talents.
    Thank you for sharing and also the link to Rhissanna's blog. Wishing you a Happy First Day of Spring.

  2. Oh, Edie, these are such sweet dolls! I love the bright hair and the lovely clothes. Your son did really charming faces, full of personality. Thank you so much for having a try of my pattern; I'm so happy you were able to make a go of it (and that it made sense. Writing directions is not my strong point). I've featured you and the Sister Dolls on my blog and put up a link to the pattern. Thank you, again!
