Black Apple Doll Christmas Presents

I’m probably one of the last people to jump on the Black Apple Doll wagon, but here are a couple I made for the girls for Christmas.  They were really fun to make, the pattern and directions were really easy to follow (can’t go wrong with pictures). 

I hand painted the faces, which I’m relatively happy with for now.  I did get a good tip from Deanna of Just Deanna about adding a seam allowance to the leg and arm pattern pieces.  I added about a 1/4 inch which turned out great.

I’ve got more plans for these dolls in the future – some cute clothes and shoes perhaps?  And then I got to thinking about making the dolls their very own sleeping bags or tote bags to use, I can hardly wait!  They’re taking a nap in my closet until Christmas, shhh! don’t wake them up!

Oh, and I couldn’t resist, don’t tell Santa I’ve been naughty!
