Doll making


Doll making, originally uploaded by soja.

I cut these out, hmm I think over the summer? Maybe even Easter last year, so thought that I had better get back to them. I'm trying out two slightly different designs - one with handsewn fingers and toes, and one without. I'm pleased with the size and proportions, though I think that they are still too time-consuming to make to sell? There are 16 or 18 separate pieces to each body. If I make crochet caps and individually hook on the hair it will take a while to finish them.

I imagine like many other things in crafting, the dolls might be a labour of love rather than anything you actually make money at ... especially if you are hand-sewing the fingers and toes! They look lovely, though, and I'm sure they will be gorgeous when done!

Thanks, I plan to enjoy the process!

Oh her poor toes, I hope you've taken the pins out now :)

Eek! Yes, it does look a bit gruesome - the are all sewn up now! It's sort of why I leave the faces til last... :-)
