AN ELF GIRL


SOLD
The cloth doll is finished and the brown bodice/jacket fits. A tad snug at the waist because she's wearing a chemise, bloomers and two skirts.


When I was searching through my stashes of fabric, I came across this colorful batik full of Autumn colors which became my inspiration for this doll's costume. Fortunate for me, I found the perfect color for the chemise and bloomers in a gorgeous golden silk.

DOLL HEAD REDO


Have you ever finished a doll and for some reason you weren't completely satisfied with the end result? This is exactly what I experienced with the Moth Fairy doll I made last month. I loved everything about the doll but I didn't love the face. I made the decision to remove her head and give her another. So here she is with her new head and a more realistic face.

HAND SEWN EYELETS

For my next doll I designed what I call a Tinker Bell style bodice that laces up the front. I seldom like adding grommets even though I have the power riveter and hole punch tools. I'd rather hand sew the eyelets using the buttonhole stitch.
