Fabric Contest Entry #3
After looking at all the wonderful designs on the new Nancy Drew fabric, I decided to make a Nancy Drew doll. The pattern I used is from Tinker’s Corner. The pattern is named Sara Sleuth. The designer of the pattern suggested fabric choices for each outfit. I am thinking that the style of clothes she used for Sara Sleuth are from the fifties Nancy Drew.
I decided to have some fun with the new Nancy Drew fabric. I used the various prints for different outfits. One of the fun things about Tinker’s Corner’s Sara Sleuth is that for each outfit, the designer gave a little paragraph describing what mystery Sara was working on. I am not sure if this pattern is still available. I have had it for years.
I also borrowed some fun accessories I had from my Robert Tonner Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys dolls. The magnifying glass, lantern, flashlight and books are from the Tonner dolls. I loved Nancy Drew as a child and as an adult I still love to read her but I also love to make cloth dolls and doll clothing. This project was pure joy to work on.
