Sew Much More

Olive and Archie

Filed under: being crafty — by michellew @ 9:11 pm

Katie recently told me about the weewonderfuls blog.  I just read her doll story and now I want to make those little dolls for Caleb and Alice SO badly.  You’ve gotta read the story of Olive and Archie.  I really want to make Archie, Olive, and their kitty, but most of all I want to make the dolls so I can make them backpacks and sleeping bags!  I mean, I just love that little acorn backpack that Olive is wearing.  Maybe I’ll make these for Caleb and Alice for Christmas this coming year.  Though who knows if Caleb will still be into dolls at that point.  Maybe I’ll get less ambitious and make these instead. (which I found from a link on whip up.)


  1. i love the martha stewart dolls! if you end up doing that, count me in!

    i am glad that you are updating this blog regularly. it is fun to read about projects that you are considering and those you are working on…

  2. I didn’t know where Oive & Archie came from but I’ve seen them on a knitting blog I regularly read ( – scroll down a bit to see the ones she made). The wall of baby quilts was an impressive sight too.

    Looks like so much fun – making doll stuff. Everything I make gets taken by the rabbits at our house.

  4. Not living rabbits – stuffed toy rabbits that can be dressed. Even though the rabbits mulitply in the house as if they were real (I think there are at least 20 by now and they are all related). Hattie has the whole extended family tree worked out and they interact with complicated relationships. Girl play is so different from boy play.

  5. That’s hilarious Jennifer. Do you make them? I so wish I could know Hattie at this age. I miss you guys! Bob and I are definitely wanting to come west someday and visit you guys. We’ve never been farther west than Missouri. But we’ll wait till the kids are old enough to remember it.

  6. oh Michelle you have such talent!! I e-mailed your pattern pics to my MIL, hope you don’t mind, but we seem to have the same taste in little girl’s clothes and my MIL can sew. I on the other hand lack the patience to sew, but I love to design, lol!! I can’t wait to see your finished projects!
