My First Dinky Baby by Ann Soper

This is what Ann had to say about her first Dinky Baby: I just finished my doll, she's not as great as yours, but I wanted to tell you your instructions are great! I have never had any pattern that I could follow as easily as yours. Each time I did something on the doll I would have to show my husband. I love her, and plan on keeping her for myself.

Ann did a great job on her first doll, I am so happy for her!

Sneak Peek at "Dinky Dot" Clothes
These little dolls will be coming soon. Remember paper dolls? I have based these on the same concept. A padded book with a pocket in the front and the back to hold two little dolls. The inside will have pockets to hold the wardrobe of clothes.
Each doll will have two faces, one awake and asleep, the other happy and sad. The clothes will be removable and easily stored in the padded books inner pockets.

A Wonderful E-mail

Hi Vicki,
I just wanted to share a quick story with you to tell you how much I love your wonderful dolls. When I was 8 years old, my best friend was given a set of boy/girl twin Dinky Dolls that her mother had purchased from a craft fair in Phoenix, AZ. It was from that point on that I was determined to adopt one of my own.

Two years later, my family moved to Prescott and I came across your dolls at craft fair.. Oh, I wanted a doll so bad, but my parents would not buy one for me. They told me that if I wanted one, I'd have to earn my own money and buy one at the next fair. Every time a fair rolled around, I excitedly went with the anticipation of buying a doll. Unfortunately you were never at any of the fairs I attended.

Just as I was about to give up hope of ever getting my own Dinky Doll, my Gram and Gramps came for Christmas bearing the best gift that year. You guessed it! I finally got my Dinky Doll! I named her Holly since she was a Christmas gift.

For the next several years I continued to look for your sales tents at the craft fairs, but never did come across them. I had hoped to add one of the smaller dolls to my ever growing doll population. I thought it was a cute touch to embroider the little heart on their bum next to your signature. I have always wondered what happened to you and your Dinky Dolls, and as I was looking up doll patterns, I stumbled across your website. I just wanted to say thank you for having been a part of my childhood and all the happy memories with my Dinky Doll.

I have since passed Holly down to my daughter who also loves her. I am a native Arizonan who has been displaced in Oregon. Currently trying to move back home to the Phoenix area.
