Lil Miss Dolls: Doll Sewing Pattern of Your Choice Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Scrapamum!

If your little one enjoys playing with dolls, Lil Miss Dolls is a company she'll just love!

Here is more about them from their website:

Hello, I am Katrina Marie the designer for Lil Miss Dolls!

I have always had a love for dolls, as most girls do. As a young girl I spent many of my days creating paper dolls and their fashions before learning to sew. As I got older and learned to operate a sewing machine, I made many things, such as pillows, teddy bears, and their clothing. It wasn't until I was 11 that I was really inspired to make doll clothing, after finding a Hot Looks doll by Mattel. She was a 18” poseable cloth fashion doll. I loved her so much I designed her a whole line of clothing...and made a limited edition of each outfit to sell at a local craft show that my parents were doing. I still remember staying up late packaging each outfit in a plastic bag, with a piece of poster board and a printed fold over label stapled to the top, the night before the show.

Soon after my first doll clothing line I was getting paid to sew. At first, it was a job for my mom sewing canvas and leather art pillows. But quickly it turned into sewing clothing for myself and my friends. By the time I was fourteen I was professionally paid to make dresses for a local Sewing and Alteration shop. At seventeen I was working at a Theatre making costumes. And at nineteen I started my own business named Creative Garb, designing and creating Renaissance costumes, travelling and selling them all over the United States. Later the business evolved into unique Bridal and Evening attire inspired by times past and the name was changed to Katrina Marie Designs.

My intent with Lil Miss Dolls is to use them as a teaching tool for children to learn basic sewing and creativity. I feel that a project which holds their interests will be more likely to help them learn a useful skill that can be carried with them for their lifetime. Lil Miss and her fashion friends provide a fun and creative teaching experience that doesn't end when the doll and clothing are finished. The learning continues, as they play and develop their Lil Miss characters. Each Lil Miss Doll has a name, a job, and lots of interests that are all shared on the website and in the Lil Miss E-zine which includes healthy recipes for cooking and baking, gardening tips, and info on places around the world.

So, if you are looking for a fun, creative, and interactive way for your child to learn and grow, we hope we can inspire you with Lil Miss Dolls & Friends.
