8.5" doll for charity

Tampa Doll

Recommended Posts

I have a few of these dolls, that I got on sale at Walmart a long time ago.  I decided to take an old pattern I have and make all the dresses offered.  I now have to decide if I am going to make a tote or make the pattern that comes with the doll dresses.

The pink and black outfit is a bikini and a hat.

I agree with Brenda. My 2 youngest great-GD's would be jumping up and down for this little doll and her wardrobe. Nice work.

I apologize for bumping this old topic, but I have done quite a bit of research on this, so I want to share my experience.

i I'm new here. I collect reborn's, at 1st I only invested in one to model my knitted & crochet baby clothing to help them sell better, which worked a little bit and my work looked so much better than on a cheap play doll like this https://toyboxadvisor.com/most-realistic-baby-dolls it opened me up to the reborn community, where I seem to find loads of people who enjoy them & treat them like real babies some role play, using REAL baby food (still think that's odd but who am I to judge) some take them out with them they get mixed responses from the public, others just display them, I have seen some ladies with a beautiful nursery set up where they have spent a fortune on fancy cribs decorating furniture etc etc, least they wont grow out the stuff lol. I turned into a collector, I still make clothing but enjoy trying them on the dolls & taking little photo shoots of them posing in the outfits, I don't take mine out because the folk round here aren't very open-minded, I did find it relaxing pushing a pram always have. 
I am a parent carer so my knitting & crochet take my mind off the stresses of daily life plus I have disabilities of my own, osteoarthritis, ADHD & fibromyalgia so the dolls are relaxing.

These are 3 of my reborns. The one in pink knitted dress (which I made) is Robyn my micro preemie, the one in the Scotty dog skirt is Faith my new born size, bigger one is Mia in a pinafore I knitted. I have another 2.

It is nice that you make these beautiful dolls.

But, if you read the whole post you will find that this doll and the clothing is going to a charity at a High School, that will give it to a little girl who will love the CHEAP Doll and her cloths. 

I have one baby doll like the ones you have, but the dolls I dress are done for fun and charity, not my own pleasure.

You could always take pictures of what you make and show them to us in a post.
