Doll – Elly

If you read this blog entry here, you’ll see a piece of digital art I created back in 2006. In that entry I talked about Elly. Who is Elly? o_O? Hmm, well before there was Caydi or Cayla there was Elly! All these names are starting to confuse me. Haha! Anyway, I’m very thrilled to share with you all Elly. That’s right, I made her into a real doll!

Here’s what she looked like on paper. 🙂

And here she is, ready to wish you a Merry Christmas.

I started working on Elly during Summer but with other personal life goals I set her aside and just recently pulled her out. When I saw her, I knew I couldn’t leave her unfinished. I have too many unfinished projects  and I didn’t want her to be one of them.  I hope you like her.

My doll making process has been difficult, I keep trying to find better ways and techniques to do things but I think I got a pretty good start so far. 🙂 All my dolls that I’ve made, they sure put a smile on my face. I hope you like them. Have a wonderful night.

My Hmongy Doll – Cayla

She’s here! She’s here! She’s finally here! Cayla is here! That’s right, my first Hmong Doll – Cayla! My Sis in law named her and I think it’s a perfect match.

I always get really excited when I finish a project because I get to share it with everyone but this little doll just makes me so happy! When I look at Cayla, I just can’t help but admire her.

Cayla is 12 inches tall and is made from a soft knit fabric and stuffed with polyfil. She has enough clothing to make three combinations which are all removable. She also has two aprons, two headbands, a pair of cute shoes, two bracelets and a necklace. Oh, and a head full of hair! My goodness, if you read my last post, then you know how long it took me to get the hair done. -_-” All her hair is free flow, so it can be styled and played with. I will be selling this little doll at my Etsy shop and hope that a lucky little girl out there will be able to soon have Cayla to hold and play with!
