My friend from high school commissioned me to make her mom a Puerto Rican doll for mother's day.
And this is what I came up with.


I know the dress looks eerily like the one in my avatar.  But that is because I lost the plug to my sewing machine and couldn't make her the blue jeans she requested.  Well, I could have hand sewn it - but then I wouldn't have met my deadline.  Besides, I think the dress looks more Puerto Rican than a plain pair of jeans.

She has boobs, of course. Ever since I made boobs on another doll, I think I have become obsessed with them. I wouldn't dream of making another flat chested doll (unless it's a kid or a man doll, ha!). Her accessories include: a flower for her hair - attached with a bobby pin, brass bracelets and brass earrings (that have sterling silver ear wires).  I just got some brass wire from Lowes and molded it into jewelry.

My friend's mother has not received her gift yet, since it is not yet mother's day, so I don't know what her opinion will be.  But I am expecting her to like it!
