Molly the Hippo

Parts of this hippo doll have been floating around my sewing room for quite some time. I wanted it to have an exaggerated head, but not too big. I had  go a few times at making it right, but various heads sat on my cutting table until last week when I thought I would make one for Eva. Nothing like have a birthday deadline to get you sewing and fixing some design problems. I think she is the perfect huggable size for a 5 year old. She was immediately called Molly and has been tucked under her arm ever since.
I can't promise that the pattern will be ready soon, but it is on the list!

This might be even cuter than the dress, just maybe :-)

I'm not surprised that Molly was adopted straight away, she's gorgeous!
