I decided that I’d give my nieces and nephews daddy dollies for their 2nd birthdays, so here’s the latest one. Guess what my niece’s name is!

To make the shirt, I printed out an I Love Lucy logo and used a lightbox to trace it onto some jersey with a gelly roll pen, and then I heat set it with an iron. I read somewhere that once you heat set it, the gelly roll ink is permanent, and although I haven’t run anything through the wash yet, I did try scrubbing at it with a fels naptha bar, and nothing came off. I’m optimistic! I like gelly roll pens because they’re easier to use (and a lot cheaper) than micron pens. :>

I put this doll’s arms in wrong again (like the last one)! I hope I don’t make the same mistake again the next time I have to sew one of these. >_< daddy dolly
