Elisabeth Bea is ready for a home

Little Miss Elisabeth Bea is finally dressed and ready to find a new mama to love her!   She has a pink and orange polka dot bib dress, with tiny lilac buttons, Swiss dot bloomers and soft lilac Mary Jane's crocheted from organic cotton. 

She also has a reversible scalloped apron that I recreated from a vintage children's pattern that I adore.  It's a bit frustrating to make, but very cute when it's done!  One side is shows a pretty Sarah Jane balloon print and the other is a Sarah Jane pink floral print, one of my very favorites.  

If you are interested in bringing Elisabeth Bea into your home, she will be listed comment style on my Facebook page Sunday night, 12/9, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm Eastern time.  She will be $215 plus USPS Priority shipping.

Thank you so much for visiting Millie's Dollhouse!

Sewing away on a rainy day...

I have the house all to myself today, and I'm working hard to get Elisabeth Bea's clothing all stitched up for her.  After making her a little pink and orange polka dot dress, I couldn't decide on what fabric to use for her apron. Such tough decisions, I know.  So I ended up making her this sweet little scalloped apron that is reversible so I could use both fabrics.  Problem solved!   

I just need to finish up her shoes, which I'm crocheting out of the loveliest pale lilac organic cotton, and add a few bitty buttons to her dress.   Also, I think she may need a pair of tiny bloomers in a pretty white Swiss dot fabric.  

I'm hoping to have preview photos of Elisabeth Bea up later today or tomorrow so that she just might have a chance to find her way into a Christmas stocking!   I'll post here and on Facebook as soon as she's ready.  

 Thank you for stopping by Millie's Dollhouse!

A Smaller Size and Two New Dolls in The Shop

I've been meaning to remade my smaller 10-11" size doll pattern for some time, but as usual, extra time is pretty hard to come by in my busy house.  I finally finished it up and well, I'm completely smitten!  

I have two of these pint size cuties heading into the shop later tonight.

Ember Elyse, with light auburn hair will be auction style in my Hyena Cart shop starting 12/1 at 5pm and ending 12/2 at 10pm Eastern.  

Pepper Anne, with lovely pink Tibetan Lambskin hair, will be raffle style in my Hyena Cart shop starting 12/1 at 5pm with entries open until 12/2 at 9pm Eastern. 

This shows Pepper Anne and Ember Elyse with a 15" and 6" doll to help give you a better idea of their petite and very portable size.  

Perfect for little hands to carry around on adventures!  

I'm loving this size, so expect more little ones soon.  Have another size or suggestion you'd like to see?  I love to hear about it!
