How long does it take you to finish one Doll from start to end?

Hello!

That's a tricky question to answer because I tend to make up doll parts in big batches and I normally work on about 3 at a time - that way I can jump from one to another and it saves me getting bored! I would say that I could make a more simple doll in a day, and a more detailed one might take a couple of days. I probably spend most time on the faces, and everything else I try to make a simply as possible - I choose fabric that's nice to look at, and little bits and pieces like flowers and pieces of jewellery which can make the doll look really nice, but is all quite simple to put together.

Some of my favourite doll artists make dolls that are so detailed and intricate, and they clearly spend weeks and weeks on each one...I just don't have the patience for that - I like to find the easiest way to do things, heehee!! Cheesy

I'm toying with the idea of making and selling some patterns and instructions for my little dolls. I'm not sure if people would be interested, but I think that it might be worth a try (if I can ever put down my needle and thread! Cheesy)

Thank you so much for explaining it all for me, I understand that you kind of have to do a assemble line for making them. I would do that also. Also I'm sure it takes awhile to do the eyes & face. That's the best feature. YES you should sell the patterns & instructions. That'd be  great Cheesy                                Make a basic body pattern & maybe have one or two sets of eyes instructions, & then they can take it from there. I would definitely buy one!!!

Keep them coming, I love the Lacey stockings & the fingerless gloves  they're Awesome. The curvy body is great too. >Love, Love it Cheesy

Thanks for explaining. I think that's a good way to do it. Make it up as you go. Sometimes planing doesn't work. So that's great. They are all beautiful. How long does it take you to finish one Doll from start to end? My favorite is the one in the black lace stockings & black up-do hair & second one is the hair with like two points & marble hair color, but I love them all!!!!!!   Cheesy

I also like the asymmetry shape, very unique. Great job for your first purse. I too would need the bigger one, but the smaller would be good for quick trips to the store etc. The fabric is cute too.  Thanks for showing! Wink

This is really a nice combination of the bow wrap around the bag. Also I like that you covered each end of the zipper. Great job!! Wink
