A few weeks ago, Abby from Sew Much Ado was looking for pattern testers for her Ruby Lou Doll. I've loved seeing her doll variations on her blog and wanted to try her pattern, so I volunteered and this is what I came up with...

I absolutely LOVE how she turned out! The pattern was super easy to follow and so much fun to make! I don't typically use patterns because I usually mess them up. I don't read the directions thoroughly enough, or don't understand them and end up having to rip up my project and start over again - or give up.

Abby has pictures to go along with each written step in the pattern making it practically seam ripper proof (for the idiot sewers that don't read directions, like me)!

Layla has fallen in love with her too and re-named her "Aziza" pronounced like "Eliza".

Go over to Abby's blog and say hello! I love reading all of her awesome tutorials - all conveniently listed on the left side column of her site. Thanks Abby!


  1. You're too nice! I'll be linking to you tomorrow on Sew Much Ado -- the pattern is off to the printers - yay!

  2. That is such an adorable doll! I love it!
