Coraline Jones!

My daughter fell absolutely, head over heels in love with the movie Coraline when she saw it for the first time last week. After her first viewing, she asked if she could have a Coraline doll. I asked if she would like me to try and make one. She thought that would be great.

I was dreading it.

I abhor sewing.

So, I did what I had to do to make my daughter happy and spent three whole days devoted to making this for her, along with sewing up some outfits.

The pattern? Well, it's a Knitted Babe! Cool, huh? I improvised the raincoat and I even surprised myself at how well it turned out.











I'm so glad it's done. Now I can get back to what I'm really good at. Knitting and spinning!

Knit On!
