Biddy and Isa Softies in Patchwork and Stitching Magazine

I was delighted to get this month's patchwork and Stitching Magazine (Vol 14 No 3).  My pattern for Biddy and Isa is on the cover.

This was a project I loved making.  It was inspired by two of my great-Aunts (Biddy - really Carol and Isa).  These two ladies are wonderfully full of fun.  I spent a lot of time with them when I was younger. They are cheeky and always got the best out of life.  The clothes for the doll were based on those cute little dresses and bloomers I know both wore as kids many years ago.

I love their names. They are so out of fashion now but are really inviting.

I made this doll to bring a smile to the face.
