Amanda Vs. Pinterest

When I was pregnant with Reagan I went through a time of EXTREME nesting. Like I just had this overwhelming desire to make stuff. Like a lot of stuff! Something about having a girl got my creative juices flowing I guess!

It was during this time of great ambitions, that I really felt like Reagan needed a doll.  I loved dollies when I was little.  They were always one of my favorite toys.  I thought to myself, I could totally make a doll for her.  And I could totally make one for Logan too!  I guess pregnant brain was in full effect, because I'm a lot of things, but I am NOT handy with a sewing machine!

Enter this wonderful tutorial I found on my main squeeze, Pinterest.

Aren't these dolls pretty much the cutest toys you've ever seen?  And I loved that there was a boy doll and a girl doll- perfect for my boy and my -soontobe- girl.

Seriously, the directions to make these little lovelies from Makeit-Loveit could not have been easier.  I have nothing to add.  Just to say that someone with extremely LIMITED experience can totally make one of these dolls in a couple of hours.

So without further ado....

My finished product!


I love them!  I gave them to the kids for Christmas this last year and they love them too.  Even if they don't show it!  I know someday, they will love playing with them.  And if not, they look super cute sitting in their bedrooms.



I get compliments on them all the time.  And my favorite part is saying, "I made that!"  And seriously it was super easy.  Soooo... do yourself a favor and head on over to MakeIt-LoveIt and make one yourself.  This is definitely a Pin WIN for me, and a craft that you don't want to miss!
