Wasn’t it fun learning, or even teaching the ABC’s? I don’t remember learning them, but I remember teaching them to my daughter. We got lots and lots and lots of fun books from the library. Yes, fond memories.
Gina says she already knows them, but there are some students in her class that are still learning them. “G is for gift, and g is for Gina”, says Gina.
Gina’s jumper is knit with navy heathered Peruvian Highland wool. There are flecks of hot pink and green in this yarn. The slightly flared skirt has decorative decreases to form soft folds before the fitted ribbed area. The wide shoulder straps button and unbutton, but do not need to be undone for dressing. The floral embroidery at the hemline is mirrored on the right and left side.
Polka dotted and striped bows in rose, blue, and yellow are sprinkled on this Japanese cotton fabric used for the blouse. Gina’s school blouse’s bodice is lined, double turned seam allowances/hems on the sleeves, and hand stitched facings are what you see on the inside of the blouse, no raw edges at all. It is finished like my dresses.
The felt bag is hand made by me to hold Gina’s classroom gift to her teacher. Gina has been asking me to teach her embroidery, so the embroidery on this bag was her first project. Not bad, eh? The flash cards were found at ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com. I resized them to be the proper scale for Gina. They include every letter of the alphabet, and are printed on card stock, and carefully cut out.
Gina’s other accessories include a bow pendant, Made with Love bracelet, hair bow, and cotton tights.
“The Gift of Learning” will be available tonight (August 27, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.

I always thought of Gina as a beauty but find she is also a very smart little one. 🙂
Love her jumper/blouse outfit. Gina is certainly ready for back to school.
She says, “You bet I’m a smart cookie!” This morning I found her trying to teach the other dolls their ABC’s. lol I hope you have a beautiful day, Joy! ❤
