Hi everyone-

i'm new to craftster but not to crafting.  I am so amazed by the talent and imagination in this community--wow!!

So I thought I'd be brave and post up some dollhouse size dolls I made for my son.  Our cat roughed them up a little--my poor son hasn't even gotten to play with them yet, he's only seven months old. They are really sturdy, though.  I made them using a combination of techniques I found from other sources and a few I made up myself.

their names are, from left to right, asparagus, don't know (suggestions please?), jack pine, and blue bell.

those are adorable! soooo much better than the dolls that are made for dollhouses, they are usually so awful!  Tongue  I love their names! I would call her poppie or morning glory.

They are absolutely wonderful!  They have such great expressions and so much character!  What will their house look like?  I think you need to make them a little dog and cat. Cheesy

these are so great! are the heads made of beads or something else?  I love the color combinations and how friendly they all look.  i used to make fairy dolls for families (of the families) that were sewn (about 5in) and it was alot of fun to see what the families thought.  your embroidery and everything looks perfect for the style!

now, whether in punishment or reward, through all eternity, she must love and believe in what she did not understand.  -dennison
