This weekend I was visiting my daughter’ family for my birthday dinner and I noticed my granddaughter was playing with a Hello Kitty doll. She seemed to really like the doll and my daughter said that, my grand-daughter really enjoys the Hello Kitty.
My granddaughter wanted to come spend the night with grandma after dinner so we got everything together and she came along, we had a very nice visit. she came in and immediately went to the play kitchen I have set up in the family room and she put on her chef hat and apron and began cooking for her teenage aunt and uncle, they were watching TV.
I went upstairs and began searching for a pattern for Hello Kitty. This pattern I used was again a very simple one to follow. I liked it because the artist was able to get the features correct and that does make all the difference. And I liked it because it was a simple pattern.
I tweaked it a little, as I did not have safety eyes so I embroidered the eyes, and I used a satin ribbon and I made the dress different. My little granddaughters like the frills and ruffles, so I just added to the dress making it more full like a party dress.
As always the link to the pattern is listed under my resources. Armina’s Ani-mals.
I began the doll Sunday morning before church, went to church 3 hours, came home did lunch, put the baby down for nap and worked on the doll some more, then made dinner, and visited with my daughter who came to pick up her daughter, then I worked on it some more, I finished it about 8:30 that evening. I suppose it took me about 5 hours. Is that too slow? I don’t know… Hello Kitty is about 4 inches tall. I think I will make a couple more one in a purple dress and one in a red dress.
