those eyes - a baby for my baby

Those eyes are inspired by

and seen on
A new baby for Moonshine's birthday. Moonshine loves dolls. She spends a lot of time giving them cuddles and often crawls about with a little plastic doll under each hand or a doll sticking out of her mouth.

This doll is using the free black apple tutorial. The tutorial is very simple to follow though I must say I had some problems with fraying and ended up starting again and zigzagging all my edges. She's also a little asymmetrical but I'm telling myself that adds to her individuality. I also think a doll has to be able to stand up to a lot of use. It's a good doll for a baby as it has no loose parts.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the fabric you've used on her tummy - just wonderful.

  2. You are very clever! Moonshine will love it!!

  3. Bravo! I think she came out quite nicely. I never would have guessed Astro Boy. I think a perfect choice of bright and friendly looking.

  4. I made one of these dolls for my daughter two years ago -- carefully copied, cut, and stitched -- she completely ignored it! Ironically, the ones I just piece together on a whim, she loves. Funny kid. I like the pattern on yours, though. So stylish.
