I should've known I was too lucky.
All the dolls I've ever created have been too sweet.
I was bound to end up with a naughty one eventually.

This is Jinx.


Jinx is a bit of a wild child.
She's really not bad at heart.



She tries to be good...but it's just so much more fun causing trouble.



I have to admit, I was so excited about making this doll.
I'm going to be sad when I send her off to her new home.
I guess that means I'm doomed to have another troublemaker in the future. Wink

Jinx is about 12 inches tall, counting her long legs.
I painted her face with acrylics and sealed it with a matte varnish.
Her body is fleece and cotton, and she's wearing a removable tulle tutu (because seriously...tutus are just fun.)

Thanks so much SiFi Mom and PandaLaLaa!
I just love painting the faces and seeing their personalities come out.
The yarn I used for her hair is probably my favorite in my stash. Smiley

I love this doll! It reminds me of so many children i have taught in school, but it's so hard to be upset with them because they are just so cute!

Thanks, MommaAquaheart!
I know what you mean. My three year old makes a similar face, and it is pretty darn cute. Wink

Great expression.  And I love the colors.  It's great to see a doll with such personality.

Hey there!  Love your dolls, they are adorable! Smiley.  What brand matte finish do you use?  I paint w/watercolors on fabric but haven't sealed them.  Merry Christmas!
