Please Welcome My Newest Doll Charlsea From Maplelea!

I received Charlsea yesterday from Maplelea and she is such a beautiful doll. I am so excited about her arrival and after spending such a short time with her before the sun set here on the normally wet west coast I was able to capture some of her sweet features before the day came to a close.
With Grouse Mountain in the distance, Charlsea takes in the neighborhood. I love her meet outfit and the boots she has are like no other doll accessory I have ever seen. They are such high quality and are beautifully made, I wish I had a pair in my own size!

Here she is climbing trees and settling in nicely! 

I love her face mold, this softer expression and the color of her hair is simply stunning in person!
Maplelea has done a wonderful job with Charlsea and I can not wait to share more photos of her with all of you soon! I have to tell you I have not been this excited for a doll since I got my first American Girl Doll Chrissa.  To find out more about Maplelea, Charlsea and her collection please visit the Maplelea Website by clicking here.

Madelon Works More Fleece Magic! More No Sew Doll Clothing To Love!


Madelon is back today to share with us another wonderful no sew doll tip! 
"I loved the black and red heart print so I decided to make it into winter wear"


"I cut it where I wanted the top to lay. The bottom half can be an overall style if you add straps, or pants with adjustments to the waist"
"Fleece works like magic for no sew doll clothes because it doesn't unravel!"

Thank you so much Madelon for sharing this wonderful outfit with us today!
