Meet Miss Maggie, an Alicia Paulson design. This delightful creature was handmade for me by my lovely Lynda and I love her. Miss Maggie has been on my long list of things to make for an age, I have the patterns ready to go but now I can just accessorise her.
As a kid the only clothes I had for my beloved Sindy doll were the ones she came with all other clothes were handmade by me. I vividly remember cutting a big square out of my candlewick bed spread to make Sindy a rather gorgeous towelling bathrobe. My mother was not so pleased, but to be fair it was the bottom corner. When Miss Maggie arrived my first instinct was to make her something.
I have added a cotton floral dress, some bloomers and a knitted pink dress to her wardrobe, I feel like a kid again making for my dollies!
I made her an artisan apron too but it is very tricky to do tiny little hems in linen, I need to find something more suitable and try this again.
In the meantime she is a rather well dressed young rabbit and has taken pride of place on my dressing table.
