This is my daughter Charlotte and her little dog Maisie. Charlotte loved the Sarah rag doll that I'd made her...... but so did Maisie!
In fact Maisie loved the rag doll so much that it became a problem keeping it out of her reach.
It wasn't long before Charlotte asked me to design a dog safe version so Maisie could have her own baby. I decided to use the same Sarah Rag Doll pattern, but make it from soft fleece and embroider the face details rather than use buttons. I replaced the wool hair with fleece strips which are securely tied in place, and I also managed to insert 2 dog squeakers inside the body as well.
Maisie was delighted! ......Her baby might not have a dress anymore but its never very far away.
