Black Apple Doll

Just made this for Harper's friend's birthday. It was super fun and pretty easy! Catalina made a couple recently and (once again) inspired me to be bold and try it. The doll's necklace was made by Harper at school. It felt cool to give something that Harper had a hand in.

"Black Apple" refers to the name of the Etsy shop where these dolls were first designed and are sold. Here's a link to the tutorial on Martha if anyone would like the how-to low down.

I Made This Myself!

Start to finish, my own creation. Now I'm going to make a grown up sized one. I'm so excited, just had to post quickly to share the elation.
