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 love this little one’s face and proportions- if I had a dog that looked like this, I’d name her Mouse.
Because even though there is snow in the forecast, it is SPRING!
But, he has his winter hat and scarf so he is prepared.
Flowers are blooming- yeah!
The purple and acid green colors pop!
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.
Yes, she really is quite orange/red!
She has also got a cashmere skirt.
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- email@example.com- and I will send you all the details. Also, if you have some great LA advise, I’d love to hear it!
I could iron down her ears but they look so cute flying. It’s a dilemma.
She has a cashmere sweater skirt with a ruffled lettuce edge.
I find it incredibly difficult to get a decent photo of a black fabric piece. These are the best I could do. He is a lot cuter in real life.
This photo shows him best-
Here are 2 over-exposed photos that show the details of his face.
He is a bit more formal than the last two.
