FeiFei's Doll

It's been a long time since we had a little girl in our house, so my princess & I have kind of turned into freaks - but contained ourselves since we have no idea what size she wears.  One thing we were certain of is that our FeiFei needed a doll.  Oh but not just any doll we reasoned, nope a Chinese doll.  Well, that folks is an impossible feat - you jsut can't go to the toy store and buy an asian doll!  FInally after scouring stores and online (the ones they do make we didn't like) I found a doll pattern at Michael's.  So I got some tan yarn and crotcheted for the first time in almost 6 years!!

THankfully some of the wonderfully ladies at church were available for questions and youtube is fabulous!!  It isn't perfect, and I am still not sure if the face is cute or scary but I jsut was done redoing the eyes and mouth.  The neck is a little long so we added the necklace, and hanging off her dress is a matching bracelet for our little Fei-fa-lotta (the kids nicknamed her after watching pippi LOL!)

I wasn't going to bring her but she is so cute, I am pretty sure I jsut need to find space.  But if you see tears in my eyes it is probably because our wild little woman tore her dolls leg of in 5 minutes - you know the one that took me 6 weeks to make!

And I jsut had to show what my fabulous 9 year old made for our little Christmas trees!

She is a finger knitting fiend and she made the cutest tree scarves to dress up our minimal Christmas trees this year!

  1. Ok LOVE THIS DOLL and the name. We happen to love Pippi. Wish I could clean like her! Will the sweet ladies in your church make us one? I know you don't have six weeks with spare time to make another. It's really precious!
