Freya Doll - our version



Say hello to Freya. Little Miss calls her Dolly.
It's my version of Freya from the wonderful Melly and Me range.

In the original version she is meant to have some fabric for her face, a smaller fringe and a different smile. I also omitted the wings.This is my version only because I am really just learning to embroider which is why her smile turned out a bit funny. I didn't have any material for her face so I left it as is. You can tell where it was meant to go by the faint pencil line which hopefully will fade.

It only took a day to create. So fast and fun.
Last night I finished her but I thought her head looked a bit strange.
This morning I figured it out, I had forgotten to put on the fringe so I did it this morning. She looks sooo much better now. Plus an added ribbon.

Little Miss really likes her so I hope she lasts.
She should last longer than the other Freya I made as I will make sure her brother doesn't use her as a teether. Gosh that was a sad first attempt. Hubby says this one is much better.
I agree.

Here are the front and back views.



Off to the NSW Playgroup in the park down the road today.
Yipeeeeee.....

  1. Cherry - You asked in my older Freya post about how I did the ends. Well, I kind of did it like how you bury a knot, I just push the needle out with my thread and then cut that end off so that it disappears under the fabric. Does that make sense?
