I made this doll for the Holiday Softie Awards, she’ll be categorized under the ‘worst christmas gift’
In our/my childhood, we always got new clothes around Christmas time. Those new clothes weren’t meant for daily wearing though, no, they were meant for special occasions such as Christmas or New Year’s Eve, or any other feast or party that year. Sometimes my mother sewed those clothes herself, like that dress she made me once, with a little mouse embroidered on it. How awful that dress was, the fabric was all itchy and scratchy. God, did I HATE that dress… I never wanted to wear it. I’d rather sit in my underpants instead of wearing it. Pretty festive, don’t you think?
