Paperdoll block

As promised, I am featuring one of my paperdoll blocks today.
This is one of my favorites......what am I saying?  How could I ever choose a favorite paperdoll block?  They are all so adorable!

I love the apron, it looks like one my grandmother would have worn.  I have a lot of red in my kitchen so I made the mix master and the spatula red.
Look at the design on the gray fabric, it really looks like a cookie pan.  The fabric that was used for the chocolate chips has little dots on it, so it looks like chocolate chips.  On one of the blocks, I had to  satin stitch the chocolate chips!
The electrical cord on the mix master is tiny black rick rack, embroidered with white thread.
I love how the trim on the oven mitt matches the apron, and I also love the pyrex measuring cup :)  All of the little details are incredible. Each fabric piece was appliqued using the needle turn method.

I will feature another paperdoll block next week :)

  4. I am really loving these blocks! It looks like a lot of work but the end result is adorable. I am having trouble understanding the scale this a 12 inch block or smaller? How small are those items??? Really adorable and inspiring!
