I am quite sure that you cannot have been reading blogs over the past few weeks and still be unaware of the fabulous Red Nose Day Dolls... a wonderful fund raising project thought up by Emma Mitchell and Ros Badger... all to raise money for Comic Relief.
Creative bloggers have been busy making some brilliant clothes and accessories for the four hand crafted dolls which are going to be auctioned on ebay on 7th March. I thought that maybe I was too late to help but then Emma suggested that perhaps I could make an apron... you never know when one of those dolls might fancy whipping up a cake a or two after all.
So I have spent a rather lovely Sunday making not one, but two tiny aprons.
Miniature versions of my bigger apron.... although I think I prefer the little ones!
And all the time I've been remembering what fun it used to be making dolls clothes for my Sindy doll all those years ago!
And it looks as though the dolls have already been busy baking!
Making cakes for their picnic I suspect!
I'm thinking of trying to write out the pattern for these little cakes (should anyone be interested?) then you could make your own miniature picnic.... although that will be a blog post for another day.
Meanwhile, you can find out lots more about the Red Nose Day Dolls by reading their blog... or following on Facebook or Twitter. And if you want to help with the fundraising you can do it here!
