New Dolly Almost Done!
I have been working on a new one. Smaller than my usual dolls. She has button jointed hips, hidden shank button shoulders and stitch jointed elbows and knees. First attempt at this and not sure if I like it. I do like it in this size doll. She is about 18" long with pixie petite arms and legs so proportion is purposefully off. If I do another this size or smaller, I think I will play with wood bead joints.
She has a gorgeous wig and that is my inspiration peice for this doll. I made the doll to fit the wig LOL. Never done that before but it worked. It is a gorgeous long, mohair wig in a golden blonde.
I have to sketch her face and then paint it but that is all, oh and stitch the wig permanently on. I finished her attire today. I made my first pair of felt shoes! Yeah : )
I love her color scheme and she will have her own vintage teddy bear. Oh and her head turns.
Now, I am ready to work on a baby next. It's been so long.
I hope to get my little ones face done in the next few days and will post pics, need a name also. As always, I am as pokey as a mouse but this is how I stay sane so it's okay with me except when I take almost a year off like I did before I made Kelly~Belle. Her pattern was marinating in my brain for so long.
I am dying to soft sculpt again. Sooooo that will be fun and a new challenge since it's been ages. I am still undecided, cotton, soft sculpt pattern, head pattern... I have an idea I want to try though and am thinking probably cotton knit.
I hope you all are doing well and dolls are keeping you sane or driving you insane, it's always one of the two LOL.
