Helloooo on yet another beautiful day in Cornwall!!! Hope you are all using sunscreen & wearing hats???
For her 3rd birthday I made my sister a rag doll out of bits of old fabric my Mum & I had collected (Mum was an avid sewer so there was loads to choose from hehe) I can imagine you all doing your sums now hahaha My sister was born when I was 16 haha! Now said sister adored that doll...even when it fell apart :( Anyhow....now that her little Millie is coming up to her 3rd birthday she asked me to make another for her. oooooo got excited by that and my head was buzzing with ideas for updating the doll.....but noooooo.....she wanted it to be a 'twin' to the original.....noooooooo!!!!
I sooo wanted to do piercings and tattoos.....multi-coloured hair and girly bling...yet alone go wild with some arty stuff, would have been good eh??? Never mind, I have done as she has asked.....meet dolly...
She stands about 2feet and has 'joints' at her knees & elbows. Sis chose the dress fabric from my store..it has a deep frill round the neck. She has a lacey petticoat and the required lacy bloomers...well she has to have knickers on doesn't she hahaha!!! I made the hair curly by knitting up some wool, washing it & then unravelling again! She has felt eyes though I was itching to embroider the whole face and I used some pink chalk on her cheeks...though it looks muddy in the photo.
She has no name as yet...any ideas??? Thank you for taking a look today, HUGS & SUNSHINE to you all XXX
