Ever since Momma Cat discovered Hearts for Hearts Dolls through Pixie Faire, she's been dying to own one!  She's now up to FIVE!!!!!

Momma has been cleaning them and making new clothes for them, because largely they come to her unclean and unclothed.  

So, here are several of them all dressed up in their new finery.  Momma is working on more clothes for them, but alas, her job takes up too much of her time!

Lillian, Consuelo, Dell, and Shola
 These four girls are all wearing undies, shoes, dresses, and hats all made by Momma Cat!  The only thing Momma Cat doesn't make, so far, are the tights the girls are wearing.  She ordered those from Doll Secrets!  

All four of these little sweethearts will be available for purchase at the upcoming St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar!  Please come and see Momma Cat there if you can!

Today Momma Cat finished another dress for one of her Melissa and Doug dolls.  This doll is such a little cutie, and she has beautiful hair.  

Momma Cat made her this little long-sleeved Baby Doll dress from fabric purchased at The Mill End Store, and the 123 Mulberry Street Pattern she bought from Pixie Faire

Momma Cat also designed and created the little booties that she's wearing.  Now she's all ready for school, a party, or just a fun play date!

 This little sweetheart will be available for sale at the St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar on November 12 and 13.  We hope to see you there!

Well, here's Wren, Momma Cat's faithful model, showing off Momma's latest creation.  

This dress is made from a very soft baby-wale corduroy purchased at the Mill End Store in Portland, Oregon.  The pattern is the Baby Doll dress pattern that Momma Cat bought from Pixie Faire, by 123  Mulberry Street. The shoe-booties were designed and created by Momma Cat herself. They were crocheted using Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima Cotton crochet yarn, and feature a faux-suede bottom.
Beautiful Wren, wearing her green corduroy dress

Wren's shoe/booties have a faux suede bottom

Momma Cat thinks Wren is beautiful no matter what she wears, but she is particularly fond of this dress with the little birds on it.  What do you think?  

The dress and shoes will be for sale at the St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar, but Wren will remain with Momma Cat for the foreseeable future!

If you've been following this blog, you will have seen the sweet little Corolle, Les Cheries doll that Momma Cat bought back in July.  She's a little blonde sweetheart named Camille.  

She came with a pair of ballet tights, a leotard, and a dress that clearly wasn't hers originally.  Here she is, just in case you missed seeing her.  

Camille, as she was when Momma Cat got her.
Camille has such a sweet little face, and her hair is just wonderful!  Her only flaw is a small scrape on her forehead.  Momma Cat thinks it makes her look a lot more interesting! You really can't see it in the photos, you have to get up close and personal to notice it at all! 

Well, Momma Cat has busily been working on an outfit for Camille which is totally new, down to and including the underwear!  

Here she is is her new outfit.

Camille's new outfit!

Momma Cat crochet a hat, and some little boots, complete with leather-like soles, for Camille.  Then Momma made her a little dress and a jacket from patterns she bought from Pixie Faire

The only thing Momma Cat didn't make were the tights, because she doesn't really know how, yet!  Momma Cat bought the tights from an Etsy site called, Doll Secrets
The tights fit excellently, and they come in about 30 different colors!!!

What do you think of little Camille now?  Momma Cat is going to try to sell her at the St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar in November. 

More information about the dates and times of the Holiday Bazaar will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks!
