Easter Bonnet and Easter Basket

Sweet Little Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls
Getting an Easter Bonnet and their own size Easter Basket

I start with a blank slate
and get out the millinery paper posies
ribbon and glue ...
Miniature Treasures to tuck Inside!

I have a few of these Straw Hats in my Shop
this week, if you want to make your own!

I think she loves her Easter Bonnet
and Embellished Easter Basket

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial, if you are looking for
a Nancy Ann Doll of your own remember I have a few left in my Shop.

Have a Creative Week,
Hugs & Kisses,

Hi Diane,
I have a pretty nice little collection of Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls! Most of them were my mother's when she was a child to which I added a few as I found them. I don't collect anymore but I still like looking for them when I go to flea markets, thrift shops and such. It doesn't seem like there are as many out there these days. What fun to see your pretties! Thanks for the memories :)

Oh, I loved seeing this! She is so adorable with her bonnet and basket. Just the other day, I took some pictures for my blog of my Betsy McCall dolls all ready for Easter. They don't have an Easter basket as wonderful as yours!
