The New Kelli Doll© & Devon & Darcy Monkey Dolls Pattern©

The New Kelli Doll© & Devon & Darcy Monkey Dolls Pattern©
By Connie Hughes Designs©
Here's Kelli my newest creation...she's a very
cute and sweet looking doll!
This doll was made by using my
Devon & Darcy Monkey Pattern that I made awhile ago...
I just love how easy the Monkey's were to make...and now with just
a few little changes it makes this adorable doll...so the
Kelli Doll Pattern and all of her clothes you see here
will now be included along with the Devon & Darcy Monkey Pattern...
She is a sturdy doll and sometimes when making
dolls the head can be a challenge...
but this one is really easy, you'll love just how easy!
They can wear each others clothes!
What a wonderful Easter Basket gift for a special little girl!
I'll show you how to make my Bunny Bag!
You could make this bag a little bit bigger and make one
for your own little girl!
She is super cute but what I love about her the
most is how sturdy she is...any little girl will simply love her!
I've made her these cute bunny ears to wear!
Her little dress is perfect for Easter. She even
comes with her own little backpack!
She has a little Bunny applique on her dress!
 
That's right Private Kelli is ready when duty calls!
This out-fit is also included!
She could easily be made into a boy doll...in fact I was
going to make a boy doll...then I saw a military mom on TV coming
home and seeing her children for the first time in a very long time...
it was very moving, so I thought it's a girl!
 Plus She was made with Suncatcher Craft Eyes!
Go see Michelle & Tell her Connie's Spot© Sent You!!

 
We Proudly Salute Our Military!
