I know it always surprises everyone when a boy-minded mom pulls out a girly project, but I do get lucky every once and a while.
We were fortunate enough recently to be invited to the baptism of a friend recently and since I don't get the opportunity to make little girl things very often, I set out immediately to find the perfect little girl gift.
I stumbled upon this Black Apple Doll pattern while searching the blog-sphere for suitable baptism gifts for an 8 year old girl.
A few added embellishments and a monogrammed tote and the gift was done. This was such a quick project that I feel like getting started early on the Christmas gift list or just making a few to have laying around in the case of birthday party invites.
Seeing that I'm pretty far removed from my 8 year old experiences, I'm just hoping that a doll wasn't too baby-ish for an 8 year old gift. What do the little girl mom's think?
