Happy Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year) 2014

Did you know today is Lunar New Year? Growing up it was called Chinese New Year for me but I am told the preferred title is Lunar New Year , I love the sound of that! Both Madelon and Jessica T have been kind enough to send in some wonderful doll play ideas! First Madelon:
This year is the year of the Horse and Madelon shares some wonderful mini Ivy photos with us today!
Madelon shares her Mini Ivy Scene

"Ivy serves a whole chicken (for good luck) with a rice pudding dessert"

Madelon used items from her doll play collection for her smaller dolls and Barbie as well as a saucer from her 18 inch dolls tea set for her scene.

  Jessica T has found these wonderful make it your self Fortune Cookie Craft that can be easily adapted for 18 inch doll play. Click here for free pattern and directions. 

In September of 2011 I created the "Pink Panda" Restaurant for Doll Diaries which is a tutorial for felt food. You can view that Tutorial on Doll Diaries by clicking here
