Hi, I finished her yesterday, and finished her outfit today. Her name,Akia, means First Born. This was my first time ever using a sewing machine, following a pattern and making patterns on my own (for her clothes and shoes). She isn't perfect, but I really like her!

I couldnt take great pictures today due to rain and miserable weather, but anyway, here she is.

PS - Any comments and constructive critisim appreciated Wink

WANTED TO ADD: I couldnt get any pipe cleaners, so her tail is also made from the wool I used for her hair. And I brought the wool like that, I am going to go back and get different colours to I think Tongue

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!

Let the baby crafting commence!  Cheesy

I saw the ribbons on her arm and thought "bondage poppet!" but alas, it was just my dirty mind.   Cheesy

She's so sweet looking, and her shoes are cute!

You might have something like that to look forward to, my friend has requested just that.

Excellent job, she's so cute, and I love the angle her head's at, makes her look really sweet!

She's adorable! You did a great job! Especially for a first timer.  I like your style.
Bondage, hummm... She looks too innocent to me.

Thanks for your replies! Bondage, hmmm, might be an idea Tongue

I would really like to take better pics when the weather clears up and post them, these ones don'tdo much justice, as some details cannot be seen properly...
