“It's A Girl!”, 16” Baby Shower Centerpiece Doll and Decoration E-Pattern - Baby Shower Series - Pattern Category - Skill Level - Beginner
I just love baby showers and wedding showers. In fact, one of the most pleasurable times I had was hosting a wedding shower for my niece with my sister and sister-in-laws. I had so much fun planning the shower, but most of all I had fun creating all the shower decorations and will be blogging about those wedding shower decorations in a post on my Linda's Blog in a little while. So, when I was designing some of my new dolls and patterns I decided that I wanted to design some centerpieces and favors for wedding showers and baby showers. "It's A Girl!" and "It's A Boy!" doll centerpieces are two of those designs.
What could be cheerier on the table of a baby shower then two baby doll centerpieces surrounded by baby shower presents? Not much that I can think of. "It's A Girl!" figures if she behaves herself and looks adorable then she will have done her part to make the baby shower a success.
It's A Girl!" is a 16" self-standing baby shower doll centerpiece with a square bottom. Her body is made of flannel cloth and her arms are wired. Her head is of muslin and her face is outlined with a combination of black Micron Pigma Markers, watercolor pencils and colored pencils. Her eyes are quizzical and outlined with black while the whites of her eyes are painted with a white watercolor pencil. Peach shading outlines the tops of her eyes. The sides of her nose are shaded light brown and her cheeks are blushed and shaded brown and pink. Brown freckles dot her nose and cheeks and white paint dots highlight her cheeks and forehead. It's A Girl's!" pink shirt is made of flannel, is gathered at the neck, and gathered at the sleeve hem. She has thick curly hair that adorns the side seam of her head. A matching pink flannel cap with a cuff that is embroidered "It's A Girl! with black DMC Embroidery floss sits on the top of her head. She is carrying a matching pink flannel blanket in her right hand and has the thumb of her left hand in her mouth.
"It's A Girl!" isn't quite such exactly what to expect, but is ready for anything. She is so excited about the baby shower she's attending and hopes she and "It's A Boy!" do their part to make the baby shower successful. You can't help but think it will be a success. Just look at their cheery and inviting faces. Happy! Happy! Happy! Baby showers are joyful and happy times and "It's A Girl!" and "It's A Boy!" are their to make it happen.
