I finally uploaded something onto my YouTube Channel. Check out doll #22. Unlike my older original dolls, this one is different because the facial features and trims are actually printed versus drawn on. To be honest I do like this printed method however when I got done making this doll, I did not feel as accomplished. With my original dolls I had to be so careful when drawing on the faces that it drove me bananas. LOL. So when I got done drawing, I was so proud but this printed one felt like a cheat. >_< Hmm…I’m still very happy with the outcome though and I think she’s gorgeous.
I also have decided to add two “Made to Order” listings at my Etsy shop for my dolls. One is for my original dolls and the other for the printed version. If you’d like to have a doll made especially for you then check it out! 🙂 Good night.
The doll that I have been working on is done! I’m happy with the overall design but I still can’t get the eyes figured out so until then I’ll keep it the same way I always have. Her eyes personally I am not happy with but it’s kind of late. x_x
Her dress is made from felt with tulle overlay. I love my tulle! The dress can be removed and I used a small piece of velcro to help secure in the back. Her belt sash pulls to the back and ties a bow. She even has a pair of undies on! Haha!
The photo below somewhat shows the progression of my doll testing. The top three are the testers and bottom three are the more final ones. I love the one with the white hair. She looks so pretty and I think her eyes also look really good but I haven’t been able to duplicate it again. Makes it frustrating. >_<
I know I’ve talked about it over and over but the shop will be opening again late this week! Hope you’ll check it out. 🙂 Have a great night.
I give you doll 10 and 11! ^_^ Made with much love and soon to be sent out to a customer next week. Of course I gave them their own photo shoot AND yes, finally a new background for a change instead of my usual sparkle one! =P Enjoy.
I love these bows on the shoes!
I had so much fun in California, it was great seeing the family again. I love you family! ^_^
While I was visiting I found something in my niece’s room! I found my first Hmong doll I made which I had sent her. I can tell the doll has been played with plenty of time and I love that! I also spotted the Hello Kitty pillow I made from 2012?
I dropped by Minh Phat Fabric Store and GP Fabric in Sacramento and oh my, I just love fabric stores. Something about holding and touching fabric is just so satisfying! A family member told me about another fabric store not far from these two also but I didn’t make it there. I hope to next time though!
The fabrics I picked up are going to be aimed towards my dolls. Hopefully I can start whipping up some again. 🙂 Lastly, my Etsy shop reopens soon! 🙂
I’m finally in bed and it is almost 3pm. I’ve been up all night working on my doll and I think maybe just maybe she might almost be done. Still many things to work on. I think I’d still be working on her right now if it weren’t for Hubbie telling me my baggy eyes were very extreme. xD
For now I think I’m in zombie mode so nighty night!
I decided to whip out my clay tonight and work on something for fun.
She’s so chubby. Lol. Hope you like.
