Flat Ruby

What could be hiding in that bag with the "Ruby" label?

Why, it's Flat Ruby! 
A fabric "paper" doll made using this tutorial from Moda Bake Shop (super fun project to make!).

She is ready for anything. 
A fun day at the park.

Lunch with the girls.

Even church on Sunday.

Who doesn't love a girl who can accessorize?

And she even has great hair.
Is it wrong to envy a fabric creation, I wonder?

Now we'll just hope that sweet Birthday Girl Ruby falls in love with Flat Ruby when she shows up at their house to move in with all her stuff.

I completely fell in love with her. 
The boys tried her out and I asked if they wanted boy dolls with manly outfits (really really hoping they did so I could make more). My oldest looked a little bewildered and said, "No, Mommy. Dolls are for girls." I asked him again and talked it up a little. He just stared at me for a second like I was speaking Greek and turned down the offer a second time.

But we had a good time on the machine. See you around, Ruby.
