This Weeks Doll Photos and an Update from Haiti!

Friday, August 6, 2010



I’m excited to tell you all that the first batch of dolls (approximately 30 but a few more might turn up in time) are going on a trip!!!  This time next week they will be in a suitcase on their way to Haiti with Dee, the Regional Director of Free The Kids!

‘They are all so beautiful, with their own little personalities!’ Dee

But ….. Please please please include a note with your name and address when you send your dolls, as a lot of them are turning up blank.

The other good news is that there is a little girls orphanage down the road from the Free The Kids one who would love to have our excess girl dollies!! Hooray!


Ahhh that’s made my weekend!!! Right, let’s sit back and take a look at some of the lovely dollies we have been making!!


The main photo dollies are from Kathryn from Japan .. yes Japan!!

“ I think it's such a great idea! I'm so happy to have participated and can't wait for the children in Haiti to receive the dolls made with love from people everywhere!”



These 28 dollies (21 boys and 7 girls) were made by Colleen, Senior Companion, and her clients, Donna, Rhonda, Kathy, Carol, Marva, and Lorene. They are all so beautiful and the fabrics are brilliant!

“....(We) had a great time creating these Dollies for the orphans in Haiti. We hope they get much enjoyment from these Dolls.”



Gilly left these two cuties in our Flicker DD photo pool!  I love the little girls shorts!


And Amanda (USA) has been sewing again!!  This is her second batch of Dollies ... aren't the hearts on their hands adorable!!! ♥


 
Thanks Everyone, have a Wonderful Weekend!

Don't foregt to send me your dolly photos before you ship them!!
Happy Sewing!

All of these dolls are so cute! That's so cool that a girl orphanage would be supplied too!

I just added your dolly donations button to my blog. How much longer will donations be accepted? I'd love to participate, but have some personal things to clear out of the way before I can focus on a new project.

Hi Sarah,

Those are all so cute! You have inspired me to make my first doll and I will be sending her off to you with a few others soon. I have blogged about her here http://eleanorsboutique.blogspot.com/

Hi. I just finished my first boy doll. I had been given an orange African print with elephants, zebras, etc. on it. Perfect for little boys, I thought. I am hoping to get at least five more done during Feb. Also inviting others to help. I have forgotten where and how to send them, so will search this page in the morning. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to contribute something.
