Introducing Miss CC {a Black Apple Doll}

I'm thinking I must be the last person on Earth that has heard of Black Apple Dolls.  But now that I found the free pattern at Martha's, I have jumped on the bandwagon and made one for my oldest daughter for Christmas.  I think I might pop out a few more.

A few things I did differently than the tutorial... I pinned the arm pattern onto my muslin and cut a rectangle out and then sewed around the pattern.  I then took the pattern off and cut around the seam with my pinking shears.  I did the same for the legs. It makes turning those spindly little limbs right-side out easy as pie!

I also decided I wanted longer legs for little "CC"... so I added a couple of inches, but I don't think I'll do it for the next doll.  They are pretty lengthy already.  I also added on some pigtails and shoes and called it a day.
{Did I mention that I'm super happy with her demure little face?}

Have a great weekend!


  1. I have never heard of them either, but they are adorable! These would make great Christmas gifts, thanks so much for sharing :)

  2. I love those cute pigtails...I am completely inspired to make the doll for my soon to be 4 year old...with pig tails of course...so sweet!

  3. Not heard of them before but I'm already trying to think of a little girl to make one for for Christmas!
