Two in One Inspiration

I like to see the creative process behind creative projects. Maybe you do too. Here's a little glimpse into mine. This is the dress that inspired the little blue and yellow dress I just completed. You may recognize it. My little boy is very into trains, and this year for our traditional Mother's Day gift of a children's book, he and his daddy picked out The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper. (My little one spilled the beans before Mother's Day. It's so hard to keep something so exciting a secret. He must get that from me.) As we read it over and over, I felt myself drawn to this little doll in the illustrations. Maybe it's because I'm a brunette, but I've always liked brunette dolls better, and the vintage-y feel of the blue and yellow dress this one wears just spoke to me.
