Craft Hope Doll Finally Finished

About a month ago I found out about a site called "Craft Hope". I was led to participate in their most recent project, creating a handmade doll for a needy child in Nicaragua. Please visit the site to read more. It will inspire you. It is all about crafting for a good cause.
I finally finished the doll that I am sending to Nicaragua (she is the one on the left in the photograph). She is hugging Martha (the doll I made for Lilly) goodbye. We hope she makes some little child very happy. It was such a joy to bring her to life.
The pattern for the doll was designed by Emily of "Inside A Black Apple"
p.s. I made the doll outfits from old shirts of mine (except the rose shirt, it is fabric from the $1 table at Walmart). They didn't fit anymore, but I couldn't part with the fabric. Told you I'm a pack rack!
