Ruby Doll - Inspiration. NOT a fail!



Inspired to make the Ruby Doll, I took a stab at it having never sewn on a machine since 1985. Had the craft fail blog been around then, I wouldn’t be posting for the first time.

I was so impressed that I got as much done and as I’m coming around the home stretch, I realize that I didn’t turn the pattern inside out! Also she has enough room at the bottom to add another foot. Oh well, I still do love her and plan to keep her as a reminder why you don’t sew late at night. Let’s see whose cute free pattern I can ruin next. Stay tuned, you haven’t seen the last of me

    Stitch a felt bonnet on her head, trim with lace, she will be fine.

    Alternately, give her yarn hair that goes to her shoulders.

    She’s cute. You’re not far from success.

    AWESOME! I have a fail that sort of reminds me of your doll! I have to take a picture tonight! I *tried* to make a bear for my little lady (using old sweater parts, buttons, etc). The end result: pitiful! I ended up tying a tiny scarf around his neck and told her his name was “Business Bear”. She thought he was the best thing ever! ha! Good thing she’s only two!
