They're Moving In

Ruby's Easter Dolls
As soon as I saw what Abbey had made her kids to put in their Easter baskets I knew I wanted to do the same. Ruby has had a doll house for about six months but no dolls to inhabit it. We've been keeping the vintage Fisher-Price family members on a high shelf for display only after learning they were a choking hazard but I haven't been too excited about any substitutes.

I tried to make the super heroes for Sebastian and failed miserably so he'll have to wait for the second attempt before getting his own set. I also had grand ideas for making Brett and Sebastian bow ties to wear on Sunday but sometimes laundry just NEEDS to be folded, little girls want another story, and little boys were promised a milkshake. So, maybe next year.

xoxo,
Rachel

So adorable! I'm sure Ruby will love them; I know I do.
The other day I spotted how to make dolls out of dried flowers in a magazine. It might be something to save for when Ruby is a bit older, but basically you use a bud for the head, dried petals for the body and then a whole dried flower for the skirt, using wire as the 'skeleton'.
