alissa’s doll

Posted on April 10th, 2011 by mountain girl  |  6 Comments »

My friend Tracy asked me to custom-make a knitted doll for her daughter Alissa’s birthday. The specs were light pink, dark pink, and more pink.

I loved creating this doll. There was something about making that pink hair that I found to be an altogether new and delightful experience!

I made her a bit like Charlotte, but completely redesigned the pattern to make it my own. Her head is rounder, her arms shorter, her features different.

She also has clothes designed just for her: an appliqued and embroidered dress, striped socks, and even a little pair of white undies…all removable.

Every girl needs a purse. This little green one opens and fastens shut.

She’s a happy little doll with a sunny disposition, as you can see!

Happy Birthday, Alissa! I hope you love your doll!
