A Christmas Blythe Wish

My niece and her kindergarten class were assigned to do a report regarding what they wanted for Christmas and she wrote that she wished for a Blythe doll dress made by her zia!  That's me!!  I am so honored over such a sweet and touching request.  The kid could have asked for anything too!  It's nice to see that some of today's children value lovely handmade things over the trendy and plastic things.

I only just found out and since I made 8 dresses for her in less than a month my sister in law didn't want to bother me about it.  Well I was fortunate to find out and just look at the 2 lovely dresses I made from vintage skipper patters I got from the bay that are on Blythe411 Facebook Group that I created!

Doesn't my Maria Kenner Blythe doll from 1972 look so beautiful and lovely?!  I certainly think so!!  It's so retro, flower power and pretty!   

I took my time with this because the elastic on the sleeves was something I had never done before but I figured it out.  Sometimes patterns are so vague but I was able to slow down and think about what I should do and voila it turned out so good! 

This is my Aubrey a Prima Dolly Blythe Doll from CWC Takara or Hasbro.  I think it was before Hasbro took over but I am not 100% sure.  Anyways these are my first PJ's I have made a dolly and I think it turned out so cute.  I am still using the vintage rick rack I found at the thrift shop too!  I was so lucky to find it for a buck and so much of it also! 

I can't wait to give them to her when she and her family visit me for Christmas!  I even got her and my other niece and nephew those Christmas Kinder eggs and limited edition Candy Cane Oreo's!  

I wish all you kind people a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays!  All the best to you and yours in 2016!!  

This picture was taken way back in 2002, I believe!  I took it on my first Intel webcam that was attached to my PC and only cost me $50 CND plus tax.  The lighting was horrible and it was so washed out but I had fun and I love it!  That's what hobbies should be about.  God Bless!  Cheers!!
