seriously, when i made fun of victory for ordering the video about how to make the doll’s we bought kits for i was so clueless. so so clueless. now all i want is the video for how to make the dolls! maybe i should go order one. no joke. i sit there with the instruction booklet and every single speck of stuff i need to make these dolls and i am lost. eventually my eyes roll back into my head and i just put it all away again and take out my knitting.
tonight i have to look up how to do a whip stitch so that i can sew up the muff of the first head of my first doll. i had no idea that i had no idea how to do so many things. i didn’t realize i was going to have to google half the instructions due to my craft cluelessness.
i waver between thinking that just trying is worth it and the kids won’t notice if i did a whip stitch or not and thinking if i don’t follow the instructions just right the doll will fall apart so why bother making it. you know what is going to happen right? i am going to bust my bottom making these things (even if not in time for santa to deliver) and then the kids will never ever be interested in playing with them. not even once. you know that is how it goes.
ok, i better go look up the whip stitch so i can try to move beyond stuffing the head tonight. the first head. of the first doll. of which i thought i’d be making two. ha!
