About Me

My photo
Hello, my name is Debbie McCoy and i have been happily married for 38 years. I am the mother of three boys, ages 37, 35, and 24. I have four grandchildren, my oldest grandchild lives with me. I recently had to quit working, which left me with a lot of spare time on my hands. To fill this extra time, I devote myself to sewing projects. Quilting is my favorite. I also enjoy making doll clothes, crocheting, baby clothes, dog clothes, and I have made wedding dresses.

This doll is wearing a white satin dress covered by a white shear flowered lace with silver threads. The veil is bridal tulle with flowers glued to it that I cut from the dress material. The veil is held on by a pearl headdress. She is also wearing pearl jewelry. The bouquet is flowers that was attached to a hair comb out of the bridal department at Walmart.

This dress is made from pink satin trimmed by white lace. The swing that she is resting on is made from Styrofoam, covered is pink satin ribbon, trimmed with white lace, with a few pink flowers wrapping around it. It is hung by fishing line. Her jewelry is made from pink ice crystal beads.
