Recently I asked for a bit of constructive criticism about my little dollies. I wanted to get them perfect before the whole shop thingo.
Miss 16 pointed out that they have no feet. Check! I added feet. But you know the feet kinda made the legs look funny so I had to change the legs. That meant the legs had front seams instead of side seams.....hmmmm.
Master 13 mentioned the hands looked a bit like shoes - or the bottom bit of Italy - ok, new hands. Then I went for new arms, then I didn't like how they attached. I tried more arms. But I did like the hands.
My criticism was the heads - when taking photos of the boys a while ago I did kinda noticed they were a little pancakey flat in the head department.
So, about two weeks of drawing, sewing , turning, stuffing and discarding has followed.
On Friday all the components got put together and......
She looked like a wrestler on steroids! I had tweaked this pattern to the point of no return.
On Saturday I bought some delicious Doctor's flannel, On Sunday I went back to my original pattern (with new hands) .....and today I finished these.
and the twins.
The wool also means they are less pancake like in the head and guess what? I love them !!!
All that beating myself up for nothing ! What a boofhead I am.
Anyway, after such a great day I thought I should cheer someone else up so I'm giving away this little bag. (and you deserve it if you read through all that post )
A little wristlet that might make a nice makeup bag.
Just leave a comment and I'll be back tomorrow evening to draw a name at random.
hmmm, now to tweak those little clothes just a bit................
