Over the years that I've been blogging, I've showed you a lot of the things my Great Grandma Walters made. There was the sock monkey, the scary Red Riding Hood doll, the hundred year old oil painting that currently sits on my fireplace mantel... Thirty years after her death, our homes are still filled with the things she made for us. Some are carefully packed away. Some are just part of every day life that we don't even think about much.
When Mom and I were at Craft Warehouse a couple of weeks ago, picking out fabric for my die cut giveaway, I saw a basket of little plastic baby dolls next to a book of knit patterns. It was absolutely something Grandma would have done.
And they reminded me of this little darling that Great Grandma made in the mid-50s.
She's one of those tiny plastic dolls they use on baby shower cakes. And she has a crocheted dress. And bonnet.
I think she's just about the cutest thing ever, but I could be biased. And I never realized until I learned to knit myself how impressive making a dress an bonnet and panties for an inch high plastic doll is.
