Baby Juno ITH Doll

My daughter and I made this Baby Juno In The Hoop Doll (design from Planet Applique). It is stitched entirely in the hoop of the embroidery machine. I did the stitching and she did the stuffing and joints.

This is the 5x5 hoop size, so the finished doll is about 14" long. I wanted  to make it as a model for preemie clothing.

The knit sleeper is from a free preemie pattern I found. It is a perfect fit!

Here's a view of the doll undressed. The limbs are joined with plastic joints  I bought on Etsy. The fingers are very tiny and it was hard to get any stuffing in them. It does come with an option for hands without fingers, which might be good on the 2 smallest sizes.

This comes in 4 sizes: 4x4, 5x7 (mine), 6x10, or 8x12. I think the larger sizes would be amazing. This one makes a great preemie model. We had fun making this and look forward to trying another one soon. Happy Last Day of Summer Vacation- boo hoo.

Duckling Embroidery Set & Duckling Romper!

I have been working on a darling vintage duckling set of embroideries. I kept adding more sizes and borders to it. Now it has 10 adorable designs! 
This is a collage of some of the designs.
There are single ducklings, a set of 2 and borders of 3, 4, or 5 both horizontal and vertical.
These are all stitch-outs of various designs. 
I made the bubble using the 3 vertical ducklings.
It is yellow chambray in size 3 months.
