she belongs to beautiful madeline...

here's another one of the dolls i made, using the black apple, and chez beeper bebe tutorials.  here's the original inspiration for this doll, i found it while searching for black apple doll images on google.

(source)

i was able to find the blue retro space fabric by michael miller (in etsy), and i got the striped fabric from a local fabric store.

i made this for madeline, who lives all the way in detroit.

though i haven't met madeline (i've only seen her in photos), i'm already deeply in love with this little girl.  she is the daughter of one of my best friends!  i can't wait to see them soon.

have great week everyone!
xo, carla
