Meet Kari Christina! This sweet primitive prairie doll was just finished, and I'll be adding a pattern for her to my website very soon! I wanted to make a non-raggedy Ann-type doll, and I also wanted it to be an Easter doll. I've made several dolls with bunnies and chicks, but wanted this to be more about the real meaning of Easter.
I'm so happy with how her bonnet (trial and error!) turned out! I used a vintage cloth napkin (primmed up of course!) for her apron.
My Kari ChristinaShe is named after one of my twins, Kari Christina, who just had emergency surgery a couple of weeks ago. Kari's full name means "Pure and Christ-like". A perfect name for my daughter. During her surgery and recovery, even in pain, this sweet and good daughter of mine always had a "thank you, Mama" whenever I brought her her medicine, food, plumped her pillows, helped her to the bathroom, etc. Now that she's returned to school and still can't carry her very heavy backpack, her twin sister, Kaitlyn, carries it for her. Every time I hear "Thanks, Kaitlyn. I love you". Such a sweet, sweet girl! I am truly blessed!
I have two more patterns I am working on: An Easter table runner and a Mother's Day Annie and sampler. Watch for them in the next couple of days!
