I used to sew my clothes years ago. For some unknown reason I put my sewing machine away and there it remained for years. One day I received a box in the mail from my sister Wanda. Whom is now with the Lord. (I miss her very much).
The box contained many scraps of fabric, trimmings, ribbons and tiny craft findings. She knew how much I enjoyed sewing, even as a child.
My mother used to make our dresses on one of those antique iron Singer machines. I would pick up the scraps of fabrics and create my own Barbi clothes.
This box also contained a little raggedy doll, a doll case and some doll clothes. I refashioned the case (doll carrying case), the doll, and made my own fashion wardrobe.
Here is another one of my dolls and carrying case. I named her Sally, after one of Wanda's friend. The carrier has a quilted bed and a zipped pocket that stores her wardrobe.
My latest doll carrying case is my best and favorite. It is a Fairy quilt block. Custom made for a friend. I make the cloth dolls and design their wardrobe. The carrier resembles a child's story book with a cover story. Inside the carrier is a quilted bed, a zippered page and a pocket.
