Banana Cream Pie burst into tears, threw the dolly on the floor and screamed at me that she did not want this for her birthday.
None of my other children have ever acted like that.
So I put the dolly away, thinking maybe I’d give her to someone who’d love her, a niece or a friend’s daughter. But not ready to part with her yet.
Banana Cream Pie found dolly the other day and said, “When are you going to make her a pink kitty? You said you would.” Did I?
She pestered me all Sunday afternoon until I sat down with some felt and made a pink kitty. Now dolly is acceptable, I guess.
I’m pretty sure a pink kitty by itself would have gotten as good or better reviews. I’m still asking myself if it’s my fault that I have an ungracious child. Nature? Nurture? Who knows.
I actually have pieces for 4 more dolls cut out, but not the heart to make them up yet. You can find the pattern free over at Make it and Love It, but I can’t guarantee you child will love it. I sure think it’s a cute pattern. The only alteration I made from the instructions was to make the doll hair out of flannel instead of felt for durability.
