Lela sits on a bench and admires all that good 'ole Paris has to offer...

Grand cafes, Parisian flea markets, and glorious sites...
Then, she comes home to True and tells her the magnificent stories of her adventures.

Made of linen, wool felt, and some left over scraps, Lela's got a couple quirks. In my haste to make a True a new friend, her little bun was a bit lopsided, but she looks cute and simple, better than I imagined. Plus, quirky is always a good thing, it just makes things more special. I like her more that way. 

Plus, True loves her and that is all that matters.


  1. OH MY GOODNESS. i love her. Love love love.

  2. lela is cute! Auntie Linda's gonna have to go over soon and tell Truey about the fun adventures her mom and auntie had in Paris. :)... Maybe I'll add the Italy story for kicks.

  3. you are so talented i have got to learn how to sew.

  4. awwwww!!! this is truely cute!!!! you are so clever. i think i have said it one million times. tomorrow my friend is coming over and we will be making dolls for christmas gifts. it should be fun!

  5. Bonjour Lela la beauté vous recherchez

    True est chanceux d'avoir à vous en tant que meilleur ami

  6. That is very cute, and even better that she is loved. I have made a handmade doll and my daughter has been given an awesome one and I even bought a really cool one in Africa for her and she still prefers the plastic headed wal-mart baby. Well done!

  7. just lovely........oh, and by the way...I had butternut squash in my hand the other day ready to make my usual and instead dove into a night of delicious pizza making :)

  8. Adorable. And quirky is always better.

  9. So sweet!! True is so lucky! Did you teach her a little French too? ;)
