I remember so clearly the day Katie was 'born'. You may know that Katie is one of my favorite dolls. It was almost like when I gave birth to my three babies, but I was awake for this event!
It seemed like a miracle to me. In the morning, I sat down to design a new doll and, by late afternoon Katie was standing on my work table grinning at me - or so it seemed ...
Now, it doesn't always happen like that. A doll can take a few days to design, or I can get so caught up in making the doll, that I keep making them and end up with a table full like when I did the Sittin' Pretty Girls and Sittin' Pretty Kids.
Over the years I have heard from many doll-making friends about how much Katie means to them. I love hearing this and seeing pictures.
This is my sweet Amy, with her Katie, the only brunette Katie I ever made
Katie is great as a redhead, too.
and one more well-loved Katie from the kit we offered in the 80' Isn't it fun to see them all?
