Boy meets Girl

Thanks to the tutorial at Goody-Goody on how to make this mini cute doll pocket pillows, I've made my version of these boy and girl dolls, handsewn and only taken me less than an hour to do accompanied by lots of tea from one of my fave mug.

at the back of the doll there's a pocket that u could put something like notes or other little things. i put small knitting needles in the pocket :)

Once finished, i treated myself with belgian chocolate cake that i bought the day before at sainsburys, yummylicious.

since the weather is back to being wet and gloomy, i'd better take up my other projects that i left half way done. There are buttons, Bookmarks, Granny Blanket and cross stitch projects that I need to finish....but then again i should start browsing ideas for christmas soon also and me thinks shopping on ebay is long overdue :) will keep you posted!

  1. I love seeing the different things you have made. Those boy and girl pillows are just so sweet. I like your idea of keeping the knitting needles in the little pockets in the back :)

    That Belgium chocolate cakes looks really really yummy!

    It sure is stay-inside kind of weather at the moment.

    Have fun doing the crafts and Happy shopping on Ebay!

  2. Oh they've got such sweet faces. I agree about it being good crafting weather - I've been reminding myself how to make granny squares and with one boy back at school I'm sat in front of cbeebies with the little one staying cosy.

  3. Your pocket dolls are so sweet! Well done! you are so talented at so many different things!
    Sweet tea mug too!

  4. Love your dolls and of course you had a cup of tea while you worked! Fun mug! Happy Tea Day!

  5. Wow, your dolls are so cute Susan!! love the backing fabric as well :) I think a gorgeous bun was deserved after all that sewing ;) love your tea mug as well.

  6. These are so lovely Susan! They're beautifully stitched at the fabric you've used as the backing is so pretty too. You're such a crafty one :-)

  9. Susan, your doll pockets are adorable and the teacup as well. The plate your yummy cake is sitting on looks like a Cath Kidston, is it? Thank you for sharing your sweet post with Tea Time and have a delightful day.


  10. Dear Susan,

    This just so darling.., I love each and every little detail of your precious little boy/girl pocket dolls! Everything from the yummy cake to the pretty teacup; simply adorable and so charmingly pretty!

    Many thanks for joining me for the celebration of my 100th, Tuesday Tea For Two', as well as for our 71st, 'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday'. Two'.

    Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee

  11. Sweet boy and girl pocket dolls, Susan. You always make the most darling things. It only took about an hour? You are a fast embroiderer.

    I think I have the same fabric as your rose striped! I had made a blouse out of it years ago and now have only a remnant. But I'm sure it's the same - if not - nearly the same.

    Happy crafting,
    Marianne xo
