I completed making my little buddy Miss Perkins last night, after buying a doll maker’s needle yesterday.

Miss Perkins really was very simple to make, and the results are so pleasing, she is just so pretty.  This pattern is from Melly and Me, a design duo of Melanie Hurlston and her sister Rosalie Quinlan.  I have been drawn to all the softie patterns, but they also have other patterns.  The fabric kit for Miss Perkins was purchased at the Adelaide Craft and Quilting Fair in Nov 2010, and had Lecien Colour Basics and a lovely piece from Grandmother’s Flower Garden that was coincidentally (or maybe not!) also designed by Rosalie Quinlan.

This is how she turned out.
