i spent most of my handmade holiday crafting time working on new little friend's for harper and esme. they have been affectionately named sarah and ollie. i used this pattern for esme's doll, and this pattern for harper's doll.
then i decided on a whim to make them each a papoose to carry their new dolls. i wanted something that they would be able to easily get on and off all by themselves. they were pretty easy to make, though i would likely do a dozen things differently next time- making the exterior pocket bigger would be number one. dollies need lots of extra stuff on outings, i am told!
