Are you sitting comfortably then I’ll begin………..
Once upon a time last summer Grandma went to a boot fair and saw …….
A pram and a buggy
Fast forward to Easter when they visited Grandma and Granddad, Grandma set up the pram for Caitlin to play with, really to see if she would fit the pram and that she wasn’t too short for it. This time Grandma found a teddy and put this in the pram so Caitlin could see what you are supposed to do. Teddy was pushed up and down the garden a couple of times, unceremoniously pulled out of the pram and dumped on the ground then put back much to the joy of everyone watching, but we all said we hope she doesn’t do that to Liam!
Dolly has been made a while now, but now needs some clothes. Grandma was going to the big town to meet a lady called Dee so while she was there she thought she would look in the shop that sold fabric. Grandma knew the price of cotton had shot up but didn’t think it was that expensive! Grandma was sad because she saw some really pretty fabric that had roses all over it but it was £12 per metre; even if she bought enough to make Caitlin a dress as well, she still couldn’t justify the cost. Then Grandma had an idea! She would look in the charity shops for skirts and dresses. She found one on the way home that day which was a skirt with the label ‘Liberty’s’
Then she remembered poor Dolly needed a frock!
And this white frock, also with matching knickers!
She also dressed the pram too ready for Caitlin’s second birthday.
Both dolly's frocks and knickers and Caitlin's vintage style dress and the quilt on the dolly's pram plus the pram bedding were all upcyclced, dolly herself was made from new material.
