I finished my Topsy Turvy doll...and it was a failure. My partner understands and she says that if I take it apart and make two little dolls, she would be satisfied. The case of wine and chocolate will be appreciated too. I learned a lot with this project.
The frog side is fine. There's the little frog prince sitting on a lily pad. I don't like how the lily pad looks on the back though.
The prince side just doesn't work. The frogs little feet and down facing arm keep the rock from being fully deployed. And then the prince's legs stick up. You can kinda force it, but I see now why they are always girl dolls. He's cute though, isn't he, even if after years of being a frog, he has no fashion sense.
So lessons learned:
- Don't get over-enthusiastic with the design.
- Don't have any stuffed parts project below the skirt/base.
- Don't ever make a topsy turvy doll again.
