Announcing Charlotte!

The second ever Chichiboulie ragdoll. I'm still practicing, as you can see, to find out what works and what doesn't. As I told a friend this weekend, making a cute ragdoll is not an easy task. Making a not so cute ragdoll, well, that it turns out is ever so much easier!

Hopefully Charlotte's not too disasterous. My second daughter is quite pleased with her. Although admittedly she was a bit concerned about her green and white arms and legs because, as she put it, she'd never seen green and white arms and legs on anyone before. I explained to her that she's wearing tights and very long gloves. That seemed to do the trick. Good thing it's getting to be winter, I think. Not sure what Charlotte's going to do in the summertime.

And the name Charlotte? Well Augustine chose that as well. She has a slight tendancy to name everything after her older sister, Anne-Charlotte, who she affectionately calls just Charlotte. It began with the goldfish she named after her and the trend seems to have continued. Sisterly love? I hope so!

Very sweet! I love the fabric that you chose for the hat! :) I would have made a plain skirt myself I think as the shirt is already very busy as a fabric. Just my two cents! ;)

That is so adorable! I know my five year old would be crazy about it. I love the slouchy pink hat and the pensive expression.
