So, I guess it goes without saying that I want to keep this little Princess & the Pea set so baaaad.
But I won't, because it's for our favorite little princess, Lis Ana, on the occasion of her third birthday. It will be paired with the amazingly delicious, Lauren Child-illustrated version of the book (that I also want to keep for myself. I am greedy.)
I was inspired to make my set by Manda's beautiful one, which is worth every penny, but is far too rich for our blood these days.
I made the doll with the same pattern I used for the Craft Hope dolls, except with white felt for the hair (Lis Ana is a Nordic princess) and a little gold crown.
The mattresses are made from some of my favorites from my stash, and are stuffed with bamboo batting.
