Homemade dolls are so much sweeter than store bought. There's a personal feel that separates them from other dolls.
Most recently, Abby of Sew Much Ado, has found her new passion, pattern designing. She found that it's the best way to share her love of sewing and designing with others.
Happily she is offering TWO lucky Grosgrain readers a piece of her sewing efforts. One lucky reader will receive a ready made doll, handmade by Abby. One more lucky winner will receive a PDF pattern to make Ruby Lou Dolls of their own.
Just leave a comment indicating whether you would prefer the doll or the pattern or either.
Make your very own Ruby Lou Doll! Ruby Lou is 17” tall and has attached shoes. As a bonus, this pattern also includes a reversible skirt pattern! Your little girl will love her new playmate.
This pattern is a fun project for the beginner to intermediate sewer. Beginner embroidery skills are also required.
This is a PDF pattern and includes detailed instructions with color photographs and full size pattern pieces – no need to fuss with enlarging pieces.
The Ruby Lou Doll Pattern is the first available, and more are to come in the near future.
Abby has loved sewing since she was a little girl and never stopped. She grew up sewing her own clothes, and now that she is a mother, she sews less for herself and more for her two sons.

Therefore, from now on, giveaways can be entered in three ways:
1) By linking (to your blog, facebook, myspace, or any other site)

3) By linking and leaving a comment (this will be worth 2 entries which will better your chances of winning). Find more info under the FAQ page.
If you are leaving a link just use the 'create a link' at the bottom of this post or simply creating a post on your blog and including this link.
If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. If you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.
