A little girl named Katarina loves a book about a girl named Dot-Chan. Dot-Chan loves dots on her dress....
Mama's store has dots in jars, on plates, and on mugs.
Gabriele asked me to make her daughter Katarina a doll inspired by Dot-Chan.
Here she is....Dot-Chan. Can you believe I couldn't find any red fabric with dots on it? No indeed! I found purple with lavender dots, royal blue with white dots, white with aqua dots, and all these dotty fabrics seemed garish to me. Gabriele has some red fabric with pale gray dots, so she is going to make a dress for the doll. I made the doll a dress using cotton with golden flower dots and a little golden button and tied some golden bows in Dot-Chan's hair.
Here she is resting in the patch of Blue-eyed Mary which I have in my garden.
She has light brown hair and peach skin and an inquiring expression.
Her arms are open wide, ready to give Katarina a big hug on her birthday. Gabriele, is it going to be a surprise?
Dot-Chan has a long trip ahead of her, all the way to Japan. Good-bye, Dot-Chan!
