Boo Boo Baby Doll Challenge Progress III

I had some time today to work on my doll.  Well, I got her arms and legs cut out so not a lot of progress but that leaves just to finish sewing, sculpting and painting.  Does anyone like cutting out fabric? 

I also got her accessorie well on the way to done so that was fun. Not giving anything away yet : )    She also needs a name and clothes and diaper would be good.

March is National Baby Doll Month.  Isn't that great. 

I will post photos as soon as I am done.  

So sleepy...   Hugs,

Redo in order

First head is a bust.  Really am soooo out of practice at this style I am doing and I could not rescue the sad potatoe head.  Sadly, last I saw it it was in my dogs mouth LOL.  I think she has a new toy. 

I will be starting over but so happy to be in the Boo Boo Baby challenge.  So fun to play  with other baby doll friends.

Boo Boo Baby Doll Challenge Progress

Well, I got the sketch done and head pattern done so off to a good start.  I hope to be able to sew the head tomorrow and see if I like the design.  Spent time with my Sophia tonight.  Baby heaven. 

I added the awsome button Ree made up on the right which will bring you directly to the challenge area.  

If you get the chance, you need to check out Ree's newest creation, amazing!


Boo Boo Baby Challenge at Cloth Doll Artistry!

I have been thinking about what my baby's design will be and have come up with something cute.  I am really excited to start creating.  I am going to hopefully, sketch out my plan today and then draw up the actual pattern.  Decided on fabric choice too.  What a fun challenge.

There are several going on over there that I am just loving and anxious to see the dolls but I am sticking to one doll at a time over here at Vanilla Beans workshop. 

Have you seen Ree's new doll? "Bew Bew Bunnee"  You must check her website.  It's a dream doll and I wish she were coming home to me!  Link to Ree, Tipsy Tea Cups on right, click on her button.

On the home front, it is below zero.  Snow predicted again mid week so probably school cancellations again.  Not fun with a teen and tweener with cabin fever.  One won't go outside, "too cold."  One will get some air though and play in the snow : )

Having fun with Sophia, she is rolling over now by herself, moving around in her walker.  Remember how they learned to back up first and wind up in the corners trapped LOL.  That's her.  It's fun to watch her little face though, she is so surprised she is mobile in that thing : )




We take a pic with this bunny every month to see how big she is getting.  She used to be smaller than the bunny.  She is wondering how this is happening I think.

Been too long!

Hi,  Well, I am slow as always.  I am excited about the challenges going on at CDA (Cloth Doll Artistry) and new groups.  I am going to make a baby for the Boo Boo baby challenge.  Now, that means a baby with an ouchy.  I have some thoughts but need to figure out my design.  I have been wanting to do a soft sculpt for ages so, I think this is my time. 

That all said, that means I must get myself to work.  The challenge deadline is March just right I think :  )

I can't wait to see the entries!

I have posted my grandbaby, 4 months on New Years Day and just under 12 lbs last week.  She is just a joy.   Here is a family pic at Christmas. 
Love & Hugs,
