I got another doll for Alyssa made for Christmas!!
I got this pattern from a Pioneer Crafts book I found at the library. The pattern was for a rag doll. I decided to use some of Alyssa's receiving blankets from when she was a baby to make the doll out of!
I thought it turned out really well. Every time she would walk in and see me working on it she would start yelling "baby baby" and wanting to hold it...she couldn't figure out why I wouldn't let her (she doesn't grasp the whole wait until Christmas thing - HA!) But it's good to know that she wants to hold it! It will be exciting to watch her open it on Christmas!
Here she is next to the book I used for the pattern:
