Dora went home today and I am already missing her.:( :( :( :(

I did manage to do a couple of other things for her last night and in the early hours of this morning. (Did I mention that I am a bit of an insomniac!!:blush ) World Cup (Rugby Union) (Cricket) and Davis Cup (Tennis) being played in other parts of the world have been my lifesaver..

Graceland Outfit
Used the balloon button on the skirt because I have been unable to find a dog button locally and nearest town is 1 1/2 hours away - so will have to wait until I go and if I find some will buy a couple.

Was Dora visiting because of a child visiting (I hope that might sound like a stupid question...but I'm curious...)

When I was a teen I used to crochet doll clothes for my sister's dolls...it's always been a nice memory for me.

Yes, I am sorry. In some of my other Dora posts, I told that my 6 year old niece, Tilly, and her sister Malia were staying with my Mum for a fortnight.

I managed to make 13 complete outfits in two weeks and tonight when I rang to tell her that she had left a little shoe here and that I would post it to her, she wanted to know if I had finished making Dora's Nightie Yet !!!

Oh too cute! I might have to find a doll to make clothes for now...I really enjoyed doing that for my sisters back in the day and now I have nieces that are at that age...

Thanks for sharing.

Very cute. Hey maybe Dora will come back soon. I love the outfits being made for her, but I have no excuse to make them.

I bet she is a cute slave driver.:hook

Yes, Tilly is a very cute little slave driver - she is half Samoan and has the most gorgeous coloured skin.

Her big sister, Mali, has a lot more of the Island Characteristics.
