I’m working on the patterns and I am making slow progress. As I work, dolls get made. Here are the babies, so far. Two Basic babies, a folk art baby and a bird baby-
When I change direction and am trying to get in the groove- from girl dolls which are about the clothes, to baby dolls which are about applique and surface decoration- I find it useful to step back and start with a design I have explored before. That gets me thinking and going in the new direction but hopefully not getting overwhelmed or lost.
This doll was amazingly hard to photograph. If I wanted to show the details on the body, the face got washed out. Face right? Body ended up too dark. So I mixed them up to give a good idea.
I kept thinking about the green man while making this baby.
I am trying to finish up various partly finished dolls in my studio- that is why things are jumping around a bit.
