Baby Sister (me too!) loves the Black Apple dolls I made a while back. (Find Emily Martin's free pattern via Martha here.)
So when our baby doll loving niece turned two recently, I made another Black Apple doll, complete with her own sweet little baby.
To make the baby, all I did was scale down the head and body of the original a bit and left off the arms and legs as if she's swaddled. (Bonus: no teeny tiny arms and legs to turn and stuff!) I sewed the mama's hands together so she can hold her baby, and was good to go.
And it's been a good year since our niece's last birthday...lots and lots of girly sewing for me. :)
