Handmade Gifts- part 5- Black Apple dolls


I've been wanting to make a few Black Apple dolls forever. I finally got my chance and loved every minute of making these sweet dolls for my nieces. 

My first doll. The arms turned out too skinny.  I altered the pattern after this one. 
I love the striped tights and simple red bow. 

I think this one is my favorite. 



I adore the flower and pearls on this one. 

 They were all well received and loved. 

I altered the pattern a little to make a Jazz Bear for my 9 month old nephew. My husband thought it would be too feminine, but liked how it turned out. He also recommend putting plastic in the legs to make a crinkling sound. I did and it totally worked. 

If you want to make your own and don't already know where to get the pattern you can get it HERE on Martha Stewart.

I love the way they turn out with different personalities depending on the outfit...you must have had fun matching the characters with the little girls you gave to.

Those are adorable ... I love the one with pigtails. I made some for two of my daughters last year and I think they're so cute ... I'd love to make some more for gifts.
