    If someone would have ever told me that one day I would have been sewing for my grandkids I would have told them...well, that's a long shot but a possibility. BUT, if they told me that one day I would not only be making quilts, dolls AND quilts for dolls...I would have laughed and said NEVER! And would tell them how silly that sounded...for I am not a seamstress!

    Guess, I'm living proof that it's better never to say never! lol!
    Now I've got to figure out how to make a child-size baby sling so DGD can carry her baby just like Mommy does....Is this ever going to end?!!!! (I hope not!) ;-) Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

    First time to use Minkey and flange. I like how the Minkey backing kind of frames the quilt from the front side.

    Hi Karen

    They are both adorable!!! I googled for Dinky babies and there are so many different sized patterns. What size does yours have?

    Mine is the 14 inch. It's her basic beginner's Dinky baby. Comes with step by step pictures and pretty good instructions. I got the kit so that I was sure to have the right material for the doll. And the kit also comes with a baby onsie, diaper, wrist band, and embroidery needles.

    I always say that saying "never" only limits the opportunities that might come to you. Too cute love the blanket and the precious doll. Got to do this for my gd to be in December. Thanks!

    Really cute! I am currently working on a baby quilt, in blues and browns, and was stumped on how to border it. I think I might 'borrow' from your doll quilt! Thanks!

    Hi Karen
    The doll and doll quilt you made for your DGD are so cute. I found a free pattern to make a doll sling for you. Here is the link:

    I hope this works for you.
    Can't wait to see the pics for this.

    Very precious. I have two boys so when I realized I couldn't have any more kids I started to sew doll clothes, crochet doll things, blankets, etc. for my future granddaughters. Let's just hope that they don't keep being passed down for great-great-great grandkids and I never get to play dolls with them--LOL
