Well, finally Etcetera and I have finished the new Annie Belle doll. This is a special two page edition. Annie Belle comes complete with her very own Christmas tree and presents to put under it, although you're welcome to make her more.
Christmas is always better if you share with someone, so we've given Annie Belle a companion to share her Christmas fun. Meet Rosa, Annie Belle's cousin. The two girls each have two pretty dresses and these can be interchanged between the dolls.
Our suggestion with the tree is that you either print it off on card, or cut it out and paste it onto a piece of card to make it more stable. You might also like to print off two copies of the tree and stick the pieces back to back to get a lovely tree from whichever way you look at it.
To make up the tree, simply colour it in, cut it out, cut down the dotted lines and slide the two cut pieces up one another until they lock together. Then colour in the presents, cut them out, and place them under the tree.
In the next few days we hope to finish and load up our nativity scene dolls. This set will include a stable for you to put up for Mary, Joseph and Jesus to stay in. And for Epiphany we'll be giving you the Three Wise Men and their gifts to the infant Jesus.
