I like your craft room, and am trying to fix up mine. Yours has so much personality and individualism. Love your doll in her chair. If I didn't have so much junk and flea-market stuff stored in here it would go a lot faster> lol!!
Oh, that sounds great! I have a digital camera I bought almost 4 years ago and never even used. I will get some new batteries, and see what I can learn to do with it. Thank you so much. I am looking forward to getting into some swaps.
I use patterns when ever I can, although I am not above improvising (or is it Improving?) Once you've done a certain part over and over it becomes easier. You know the 2nd or third item makes up much quicker that the first. Just remember you don't have to reinvent the wheel every time you craft something.
it's all about getting her balanced when you make her, with the size of her head, angle of her neck ,stringing, size of limbs and her torso (hips to head ratio). If all else fails, you can put some of that gummylike temp adhesive on her shoes to hold her in place. You can also put the stand under her clothes so it isn't so obvious.
Look up "doll making Supplies", parts, and how-to's. There are many well known supply catalogs and instructions available on-line. You can find the eyes, the S-hooks, all kinds of polyclay materials, etc, stringing elastic, whatever you need.
