So I think I posted in the wrong spot so I'm trying this again....I've had the pattern for almost a year (thank you ghilie!!!) and finally got around to making one...here is Lola..always wanted a dolly named Lola                                                                                                                    I learned a lot..like next time I'll use the button/shank instead of joints(left over from Teddy bear making) but I can't wait to do another Cheesy here's the link to the poppet along  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205341.msg2191824#msg2191824

She's so cool!  I love her hair and her dress, and her eyelashes!

I've had the pattern for over a year now, and haven't made one yet... good job!  Smiley

I did put little earrings on her...a girl has to have her baubles Wink  I'm thinking of putting a little necklace on her but I'm not sure if that would be too much.  it's really fun putting her together...took me alllll day though but the next one will be faster Grin I want to make a wild one...kindof like Lola all prim and proper and the next one all dark and full of spit fire!

She's very good and well done.  I also have the pattern, finally but don't know when I'll be able to get to her.  Maybe your dollie will give me some inspiration.

She turned out beautifully, SunflowerSmiles!
Her fingers and toes definitely dont look like those of a first poppet.
I have both the teddy bear joints and the button joints.  I will only use the teddy ones if I know the doll is going to a little one who will be yanking and tugging at the limbs.
The button joints give a much cleaner, tighter look (even though I hate jointing with a passion!).

Your Lola is an absolute sweetheart with those big flirty eyes and siren hair.  Great job!

digital misfit  I don't like the joints at all. The material is/was to flimsy for it. Fur is much more stable.  I definitely will go for the button/shank next time.  Thank you again for all the lovely comments...makes me feel deliciously warm and fuzzy inside Grin  I do think she needs a bauble on her neck.  I have problems with leaving things alone Cheesy and like lovesclutter says "it's not done till it's overdone!" Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Oh she is adorable. And I agree....who would have thought this was your first?

And I too have had the pattern for ages *blush*...worse, I have all the supplies sitting in a bag on my craft table Undecided. All I need is a shot of motivation I guess.
