Excuse the bad lighting in the photo's... it is only 1am.
I have entered the wonderful world of doll making which is surprisingly fun,
but incredibly (crazily) time consuming.
We have a birthday coming up, and I thought leaving myself a week to make these would be ample time.
However I am coming to terms with the fact that the dolls may be bald.

They do have the prettiest of petticoats and bloomers, that must count for something?
I am still trying to work out why I spent tonight making their underwear when I should have finished embroidering their faces and giving them hair. 
I never seem to be able to complete a task in logical order.

And incase you are feeling peckish at this hour of the morning,
here is a photo of the birthday cupcakes that went into school today yesterday.
I managed to overdose on butter cream icing, and spent the day feeling rather poorly.
Lets hope I can make it to bed before the next hour passes.

Your dolls look wonderful! Good luck with the last-minute finishing-up; that's how I do things, too!

Welcome to doll world, prepare to become obsessed! If I can help you with anything just let me know.
Thanks for mentioning the amber teething rings, I was actually tossing up whether to get one or not. Can I ask where you got yours?

The dolls look amazing, even bald. You did a great job with them.

I was actually feeling hungry last night so the cupcakes would have been great eye candy (and still is!)

Debbs said...

Well done on both counts, the cupcakes AND the dolls they both look amazing! I too am looking to venture into the world of dolls - where did you find your pattern or did you make it up... being the very excellent crafter you are!
