Hey all! I hope you’re having a great weekend. We got yet more snow today, but at least a lot of the white stuff from last weekend’s blizzard had already melted.
I spent the afternoon working on a little project for you guys.
Do you remember this project?
Here’s the topsy turvy doll I wrote about in a four-part blog series back in 2010.
This has been a very popular project. I’ve gotten pictures from several folks who have completed it.
Like these cuties, made by for Christmas last year by a very creative reader. (I’m so sorry, but all my old emails are temporarily missing and I don’t have her name to give credit.)
She managed to get Mary, Joseph AND the angel all in one doll. Move Joseph’s kerchief and you find Mary hiding back there.
Flip the whole doll over and you find the angel.
The little animals are held on with velcro so they can be taken off and played with. So utterly adorable and cute!
Anyhow, back to my project for the day. After fielding several questions about printing out the directions from the blog posts, it occurred to me that it’s likely a pain for anyone to have to print them out from the four different posts.
So today I made them all into a single pdf, including the patterns. I also took the opportunity to rewrite some of the directions, hopefully making them more clear. :-)
Here’s where you can download the Topsy Turvy Doll Pattern and Directions.
I hope it makes life a little easier for you. It’s a fun, though involved project. I you do try it, please be sure to send me photos of your results!
