Aww, she's cute. I made some ghost dolls recently too, but I think your is much more life-like than mine (I mean as life like as a ghost can be!!) She's really beautiful x
It was your ghost dolls that inspired this one. I'm not really good at coming up with my own ideas on the fly, but I get great inspiration from the net. Thanks for the compliment!


Oddly enough, it was both of your ghost dolls that inspired me! I wonder if we can keep creating a chain reaction! Cheesy

Hahaha, that's so funny - what will we all do next...who will decide...?!? Cheesy

I also meant to say that if this is your first attempt, I can't wait to see how your 10th and 20th and 100th doll turn out - they're going to be out of this world, beacause you only get better. You should have seen my very first rag dolls...I cringe when i think about them, heehee. If I had made something as beautiful as Lilly for my first try, I would have been running around the streets showing her to total strangers!! Cheesy

Heavens above, she is fantastic!!! Who needs a pattern when you can draft them up yourself so brilliantly.

Where to start?! I love her hair and her dress and just whole little cute package that she is. Lace and doilies and chiffon and white things are so much fun to layer up, aren't they?!

I hope that you are extemely proud of yourself Missy, that is another wonderful creation and I'm sure its going to be an inspiration to lots of people...Craftster is going to be taken over by ghosts soon, heehee!!

I love her, she's a little work of art xx

Hi everyone,

I was recently given an order for 3 spooky looking dolls. I finished them up today and I thought that some Craftsters might be interested in having a look Shocked)




I found these quite a challenge to make as they're not as 'girly' and 'pretty' as I normally prefer, but I'm hoping that my recipient is going to like them. Keep your fingers crossed for me! Cheesy

Thanks, like I said it was probably a stupid question... I thought it might have been just regular cotton, but I wanted to make sure.  Your dolls really are beautiful.

Its not a stupid question at all - there are so many different types of fabric out there to use for bodies that it can be quite bewildering. I know that when I first started I was completely lost and just plucked the first thing off the shelf that looked the same colour as skin! I know that lots of doll makers use fabric that has a bit of stretch to it and that's also helps to give a nice smooth finish...I only use cotton because I live in the middle of nowhere in Scotland and find it really hard to get a hold of the more fancy materials. Have a little play around with different things and see what you like...most patterns will give you an idea of the best type of material to use. My favourite website in the whole world for patterns and fabric is http://dollmakersjourney.com/ so maybe you can find something there that you'll feel comfortable using Shocked)

Thank you so much everyone for your lovely comments.

what kind of material do you use for the doll bodies? 

Sweatereyes, I just use plain cotton for my dolls bodies...nothing fancy at all. I found a skin tone that I like in my local craft shop and I find it works really well for me. When I first started making dolls I made the mistake of not stuffing them enough, and that can make them look lumpy and wrinkled, but once I got into the way of stuffing them firmly (and using a pair of hemostats to get into all the corners) I found that they looked much more smooth.

Do you have an on line shop?

Yes, I do have a shop on etsy. There should be a link to it on the footer of my post Smiley

Oooh, she is a beauty for sure! I ADORE her dress, its a work of art...can you make me a life-sized dress like that please, I would wear it every day, heehee!!

You can really see how much work has gone into her - you must be so proud of the way that she has come out, she really is beautiful in every way.
