Knitting update

In 2003 my youngest Emily was a Brownie Guide, which is for 7-10 year olds. I knitted a Brownie Guide doll from the Jean Greehowe booklet of Mascot Dolls for her to take on Brownie camp holiday. At the same time I knitted another Brownie doll wearing the uniform that I wore as a Brownie back in 1977.

Earlier this year Emily moved up to the Girl Guides and decided it was time to ask for a Girl Guide to keep Brownie company on camping holidays.

So this is work in progress on a new Girl Guide. Emily has a different uniform to the one in the booklet but its very easy to change, my next step is to start sewing up all the pieces of the doll and to start filling.

Thankyou for your kind comments on my blog!

I'm very impressed with the Brownie and the Guide-in-progress. I love making toys but I'm afraid I don't like the sewing together of all the small bits very much.

I really enjoyed reading about your trip to the Loire Valley and looking at the pics. I did a similar tour many years ago, so it was a lovely reminder!

Oh I ove these. They remind me of the dolls my Grandma would knit for us. Well done

Those are amazing! May I ask where you got the original pattern from? I'd love to make things like this for my Guides and raise funds for our Unit.
