I love this book! It's such a charming book about the life of a little wooden carved doll. It goes through her first 100 years. As a doll person, I had to have a Hitty doll. Most of my friends in my Tasha Tudor group have a Hitty doll too. Mine is not a hand carved version, but I like her face and she is quite fine.
All the illustrations are done in black and white. Here she is in her little cradle with a quilt.
A few weeks ago, I found a little quilt kit on Etsy. I thought it would be fun to make it for my Hitty.
It's a very small quilt.
Here she is, sitting on her finished little quilt. I love the colors.
I'm not a hand quilter, but one of my Tasha friends encouraged me to quilt the little quilt by hand with a simple criss cross pattern. It's not perfect but I did have fun giving it a try. It looks cute with the handwork. Actually, the most difficult part was the binding, as it is really tiny. The finished quilt is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".
I found the cradle a few years back and it just happened to be the right size and all for Hitty. It's pretty close to the one in the book. So I made some bedding for her to match the quilt and she is quite happy with it.
She's snug as a bug in a rug!
