Doll Giveaway, 100 patterns and a sale!



We're having a celebration, I finally finished my 100th pattern. WOOHOO! This pattern has ALOT of options. You can make the dolls as shown, in either a raggedy doll or black style doll. Pattern includes instructions to make a regular doll with legs, a bagholder doll and a toaster cover doll. BUT, I've designed all of these dolls to be adaptable. My bag holder dolls have legs and are easily converted from bag holder to sitting doll. Same goes for the toaster cover dolls. This way if you no longer want them "working" in your kitchen, you can display them sitting anywhere in your home you like! I plan to take many of these dolls to my shows as they are sooo versatile. Also included in the pattern are two styles of hands/arms, and the following accessories: Gingerbread cookies, a cinnamon bun, a clothesline of laundry items and even instruction to make that primitive broom!
Look at the gingerbread doll, it's a toaster cover but it also has legs! Isn't she cute?!

The black dolly with the bun and rolling pin is the same, toaster cover doll with legs!

The housework doll with the broom and the doll with the laundry are both bag holder dolls. But they have full bodies with legs and you can easily convert them.






I've also included a printed sheet with the following for labels:
"Laundry Today or Naked Tomorrow", "I cleaned my House Yesterday, Sorry you Missed It!", and "Life is Short, Eat Dessert First!" You can cut these out, stain them and make your own tags for your dolls. This pattern is $11.50, email to order.


Now for the giveaway!! If you are on my email list, you are automatically entered. If you leave a comment, you will be entered again, if you post about this on your blog, you will get one more entry. What do you win??? Well, you win your choice of Kitchen Help dolls, customized to your liking, made to order just for you. You pick the style of doll, colors of fabric, and which helper you need! Drawing will be held on 6/24/2010.


Finally, we are having a pattern sale thru Monday, 6/21/2010. Buy one pattern, get one half off.

Lastly, if you are interested in any of the dolls, I might just be putting a few on ebay!!
