In the making




Just thought I would share some pictures of my latest doll and the steps I take to make them.
I start with several sketches of the design I have in mind. For this one I want a sweet face and angel wings. I sketched out 3 ideas, then make a paper pattern from a sketch. Next I plan the fabrics...I just love this chalkboard design I bought a while ago. That will be a part of her dress!
Then I cut the fabrics and sew and bead as I go. Look for the finished results at my shop soon!

If you would like to reserve one, please let me know soon. I will only be making a few! I have to make one for my daughters 2ND grade teacher...shhhhh!!!
