Sister Thrifted

Oh, the time has come. And you know you're (not) the only one... Well, what's a girl to do with such a nifty-thrifted, green corduroy shirt? She is to give Svetlana a sister. Meet Irina (ear-REE-nah)...
If you're not so much about dolls, but you enjoy a little history trivia, read this. I do realize that my posts have been monopolized by matryoshka doll-related things as of late. Therefore, I promise a matryoshka-free post next time.

Until then, hug your pillow and you'll know what it feels like to hug one of these dolls. I'm having a hard time keeping Charlotte from squeezing-the-dickens out of 'em.

Oh man, that is one of my all time guilty pleasure songs. I don't know why, i just dig it, it's like the Eddie Rabbit Phenomenon. Oh, tell me you don't "Love a Rainy Night"!... ;)

She's gorgeous Diane and I love that you made her from a thrifted shirt!

Wow, I agree with Missa. Who would look at that shirt and see "doll" potential? And such a CUTE doll at that? Well-done. The print on the fabric is perfect, and you have another very cute creation!

I love matryoshka dolls! My kids love to play with the one on my mother-in-law's mantle. My husband brought it home for her after spending several months in Russia.

Wish I had one, too, but we didn't know each other back then. :(

What cute ideas and what cute little dolls. I have a blog called Dolls Dolls Dolls. I'm doing my Friday Show & Tell on that blog now. If you like dolls you might want to check it out. The link is on my main blog.

Wow, and I was proud I could sew a button and mend a sweater...

Now I'm going to have that song in my head for a week. BTW, I love the way you write Diane, I always have!!
