Handmade DIY Ragdolls - PayItForward

So, I know I said I was giving these wee kitties to my nieces and nephew, but I wasn't completely satisfied with the "Safety" eyes and noses on them.  Now, they probably would have been fine for the 2 girls as they are almost 6, but my wee nephew is only 1 and if I have an ounce of doubt about the safety of anything I make, I will not give it as a gift.  Just a note though.....the issues I had with the kitties was not down to the design of the dolls....it was my own issue with the safety eyes and noses....Lisa's designs and tutorials are perfect in every way...I just wanted to make that very clear, lol

I decided to go with a different design of Lisa Pay's (PayItForward on YT), her wee Ragdoll design.  It is so incredible and so easy to make....much less hand sewing, teehee.
I know this is probably a bit gruesome with me holding just the head in my hand, but I want you to see their cute wee faces.  The wee girls have brown eyes.  Lexi, my wee niece has brown eyes but I wasn't able to find hazel eyes for Jessica....but the brown is light on the eyes, which might not be obvious from the photos.  
The cute wee yoyo flowers space buns are adorable on the little girl ragdolls.  I added these lovely buttons to the centre.
Here's the other wee cutie patootie....
With her little space buns and a different type of button.
Here's the little boy.  He's actually the exact same pattern as the wee girls, just without the space buns.  It amazes me how leaving the hair off makes such a difference.  I gave this little guy blue eyes as my wee nephew, Alfie, has beautiful white blonde hair with stunning big baby blue eyes.
This houndstooth fabric is so soft and lovely to work with.  I think my wee emo sister will love this, so I will give this one to her wee daughter, Lexi.
Ugh!  The dungarees are so cute....I wish I could make a pair of these for myself.
This Disney Fabric with the Aristocats is so cute too.  I hope my wee bambinos will love and cherish these for many years to come.
