More About Jeri and Peppermintsticks, (in her own words)...
I’ve always been a girl that loved dolls. One of my favorite memories is when I was about 5 years old and my mom surprised me with a new outfit she had sewn while I was at kindergarten. I came home and walked into my bedroom and there was my Tiny Tears doll standing up in her toy crib just like a real baby. She was wearing a new flannel sleeper and cap. I felt just like a real mommy. You know, one of those Suzie homemaker toy commercials that plays in slow motion. It was just like a dream. My mom made many of the outfits with her 1964 McCall’s pattern. She taught me to hand sew with the scraps, alongside her as she sewed. It's these types of memories that inspired me to sew for my own children and friends. After all, creative imaginations love big wardrobes for their dolls. Thank you for your support over the last few years and I hope you enjoy your free pattern!
