I also witnessed prayer answered in miraculous ways as her life was spared and she was gifted to a family and faith community that loves her and where she brings great joy to many.
Our families share lots of time and laughter together and we are blessed to have our lives intertwined in faith and friendship. As we have now moved to live in the same town, I get to see this little girl more and as her 9th birthday approached, I wanted to do something special for her.
Finally an idea sparked and I set to work. These are the things I made for her birthday.
|Every dolly needs new underthings|
|white muslin edged in pink lace details and bows|
|white muslin petticoat with white lace details and tulle|
|Flannel with a mock pocket|
|Flannel with white lace edging and a fabric tie|
|pre-quilted and fully lined with cotton print and an attached pillow|
|a glittery accent for fun|
|I machine quilted a design on the pillow to add a bit of fun|
And every American Girl doll needs a ball gown and fancy cloak for parties.
|Lavender satin with lavender lace edging & ruffles and an attached tulle wrap|
|stretch purple velour with white braid trim and lavender satin lining|
Muff has an accent of beaded lace and is also satin lined
**Model doll is "Kit" and belongs to my own dear daughter who graciously loaned her to me for fitting and pictures. Thanks Jess!
