O.K. so it’s not supposed to take 8 hours, but it did! Add 3 kids, 2 babies, 1 sewing machine, a short intermission for dance class, and it ends up taking 2 moms 8 hours to make one doll each. We noticed there weren’t a whole lot of girly baby toys, so we decided to make our own. We decided to make the always adorable Black Apple Dolls. I’m in love with this little doll! It’s going to be hard to wait until Christmas to give it to her. I added a tulle hair bow and some shoes to give her a little more character.A close-up on her face. And her feet. They didn’t turn out exactly how I wanted, but I do like having them.

I bought this crown flannel and scalloped the edges to add a little extra touch to it. SO EASY!Princess Wands and Prince Swords.
Wand: I wrapped ribbon around the wood dowel, added some sequence strands and glued felt stars to the end. I finished it off with a little glitter!
Swords: The swords took some creativity. I wanted to buy them, but they were so expensive! So I wrapped the dowel with tin foil, cut a “blade” out of cardboard and wrapped it with tin foil. Then I bought some sturdy felt and cut the handle out of it. Tissue Paper Puff Balls Frog Prince bean bag toss.
