I really loved this simply written post that says so much about one’s experience of Bamboletta Dolls. A nice start to my day and I look forward to more. Thank you, Inie!

What a wonderful blog. I too am super excited because my husband and I have been in the planning stages for our summer vacation for 2014. We have both decided that we will be visiting Seattle, Vancouver, and Victoria. Of course, my husband said that a visit to Cobble Hill is in order during the week we are in Victoria. YAY!!!! I absolutely love my Bambolettas. I have a wonderful supportive husband who appreciates my love of dolls. My 29 year old daughter is getting one for Christmas and so is my beautiful granddaughter. I love the idea of passing this passion on to the ones I love most in the world. These dolls symbolize all that’s right with the world, and I am proud to have them in my home. Anyway, I can’t wait to walk through the door at the shop and meet all the lovely ladies that make these sweet dolls possible. Hugs will most definitely be in order…I’m a hugger!! Needless to say, I won’t be leaving empty handed. The hardest part will be picking one out from the group. XOX

This is a great first project for a beginner sewist.
It could also be a pillow and pillowcase for your Bamboletta doll.
My students love to make the pillowcases for their dolls out of cute flannel. I use a little vanilla extract in some of the batting instead of lavender as it is more gentle on their nose buds:)
