Fabulous Freebies


I hope you are enjoying the Hop.  I am gathering some new resources myself - they are joining my other 'squirrels'.  It's always good to have a list of 'to-do' as well as a list of 'I just want'.  Thank you Joan for envisioning this fun Hop.

 

I thought I would share one of my own tutorials with you.  I enjoyed several years of participating in a Doll Quilt Swap group.  My signature was to add a little doll to go with each quilt - dressed in scraps left over from the mini quilt.






I made a lot of little dolls!  You can find her tutorial HERE and I hope you make your own little quilt/doll set for someone special - or yourself.

Please be sure to visit the other hosts today:



Sewingly Yours,

Just read through your doll making tutorial. Looks so simple, definitely need to give it a try. She would be a welcome addition to any quilt not just a mini.
