One of the great things about these doll conventions is the ability to show off your own work and enter them into the competitions. Now, I can’t sew worth a lick, but there were two categories I could enter: crafts and photography. I wasn’t expecting to win anything, and I didn’t place in either category, but I wanted to enter just for the sake of participating.
In the craft category, I took the Amelia Thimble logo and painstakingly, over three days, turned it into a cross stitch pattern. The actual hand-stitching of the pattern took over a month, but it was worth it. She’s so cute!
In the photography category, the theme was “Believe in the power of play,” so I took some dolls outside one afternoon and did just that — played!
There were many other great competition entries as well. Here are a few of my favorites:
This is only a sampling of the wonderful entries in the doll competitions. My heartfelt congratulations to all the winners!
