She has amazing mohair hair. I’m not sure when I acquired the mohair but it was a long time ago. It was in a bag full of possible doll hair fibers, up in the attic. As I sorted through the choices, it was obvious that I’d already used it for hair once before- now I was curious! I went back through all my photos. And back, and back, and back. Right to the very beginning of when I had a digital camera. Here! That is 2001 and some of my first dolls. (And my daughter.) That was before I was blogging, before Flickr, before Facebook and all the rest.

Anyway, I used the mohair again and then went back to the fabric hair that I used for the rest of this group of dolls. I haven’t figured out a way to use the yarn fibers in a way that I am 100% satisfied with. I like her hair but I’m not sure who is in control here!

  1. Wow! Cute overload! I love all the details. The little kitty with head sticking out of her purse is precious. Last of the bunch is a grand finale!

  2. Sometimes it’s best to let the material take charge. Michelangelo said that he was merely liberating the forms that were already present within the stone. The wild red hair provides such a nice contrast to the pale green pears. Adorable!
