I made this little baby boy out of polymer clay. Even his eyes were hand made.  I just started sculpting just under two months ago.
I made his crib from plastic canvas, and sewed his outfit using fabric from my Dad's old T shirt. I don't have a lot of experience with sewing, lol.  The miniature book is from a printable, and the stacking toy was made from buttons. I needle felted his teddy bear.

Here's a close up picture.  His mattress and pillow are made from foam sheets, covered with fabric.

This baby girl was also made from polymer clay.  I crocheted her outfit.

This blue tufted elf baby was also made from polymer clay.  I made his boat cradle from plastic canvas, and crocheted his sailor suit.

I made this pouty toddler out of polymer clay, and crocheted her outfit.  She is my biggest baby to date.

Here are the four babies all together with the plastic canvas crib and highchair set.  All of the dolls except the pouty brunette toddler are in Barbie scale. The crib and highchair pattern are meant for Barbie babies.  I think I prefer that size over the bigger doll, but a friend who has been sculpting for years suggested I sculpt a bit bigger because it's easier for beginners.

I'm having a lot of fun with this new hobby and can't wait to get started on my next doll.

For only having two months of experience in the medium, I think you're doing fabulous so far.  A lot of sculptors/modelers have to work at it a lot longer than that to get the results you've achieved here.  I also love the look of your furniture; very charming!

They are adorable. I am glad you have found a new passion. You are very good with your details.
And your use with the different textures and media...ie, the plastic canvas, clay, crochet...buttons...book pages.
Very interesting.


NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.
