I finally, finally, finally got pictures of my buns back from my mum's camera, so.... Here they are!

I really love these guys. The boy is still at home with me, but the girl (who's dress I'm dreadfully proud of, however simple it is) went back to CA with my brother's girl friend (who's the sweetest thing ever).







Her paws are painted with Golden Fluid Acrylics mixed with Liquitex Fabric Medium, just like her face.

And the boy by himself:

I made them kind of big, too, finding that most patterns I was getting (for free) from online sources (mostly thanks to you beautiful Craftsterees) were sort of small.

They're made of really basic muslins, so they're a little see-throughish and I wouldn't do embroidery, but I LOVE the way painting them worked, even if it was a little tricky and I should have taken more time with it.

I adore these, especially the boy. They really are lovely. I never ever liked rag dolls when I was little  Embarrassed But now I'm all grown up at 25  Wink I really really wish I had a rag doll type softie that I could make clothes for.

These really are lovely lovely buns.
