This used to be my doll when I was a little girl. Lenora has adopted her and named her Ella.
The other day she had a neck blow out of epic proportions and Lenora came to me and asked if I could fix her. Since my nesting is in high gear these days I obliged and was then hellbent on fixing this doll as fast as humanly possible.
It was a simple process really. I took her apart, ironed her flat and cut out a new body from a fresh piece of muslin I had in my stash. I embroidered a new face and alakazam, Ella was back in business in less than 12 hours.
I love projects like these, that involve simple sewing skills but are able to save a little piece of history and put a smile on my daughters face.
