A girl doll finished!

I know, about time! I started working on the girls last fall but put them away before any were finished because the shop had to be filled for the Holidays. Now finally, I have finished one. And this will be the only doll I finish in April- what a crazy month it has been!

I wanted to make a dress-able doll so I made her body look like it was already in underwear and shoes. She has corduroy pants with straps, a Liberty fabric shirt, and a cashmere sweater. What a lucky girl!

Her hair is made of mohair teddy bear fur. I love that fabric but whoa is it expensive.

She is approximately 20 inches tall.

I have been saving this kitty fabric for a long time. I knew I would find the perfect use eventually.

She is made from a printed knit. That was a thing for a while, right? I have a selection of them in my stash. This one is a brown on brown floral knit but you can’t really see the pattern now that it is all cut out and resewed into something new. I love that.

Happy dog!

I haven’t been putting any of these pups into my Etsy shop yet because I am going to LA next week and will be pulling all the dolls out of my shop since I won’t be around to ship them. If you see one that you are interested in, send me an email- mimik@pobox.com- and I will send you all the details. Also, if you have some great LA advise, I’d love to hear it!
