Hi guys!
I just had to share my newest little doll with everyone!
I'm extra excited about her because she's the first doll I've managed to make with a removable outfit. I am SO clueless when it comes to making clothing. No idea why...some kind of crazy block or something. After two weeks of making and remaking the same dress though, I finally made a basic dress I was actually happy with.
I'm just glad my little pixies don't have to run around naked now Wink

Anyway, this is Dandelion!





She's just five inches tall Smiley



She's also wired so that she can be posed!





Her hair is made of faux fur.
Her face was painted using acrylic paint and sealed with a matte varnish.



My favorite part is every part of her outfit can come off (dress, tutu, and panties) so that she can actually be played with and redressed! (Or, in my two year old's case, she can be made to run around naked. Go figure Wink )

She is so adorable! I love that cute little face. The coloring on her skin on the rest of her body is a really nice touch. Her outfit is awesome too Cheesy

She's adorable and well made. A little hint about making clothing. If you've never sewn clothing before, it can be hard. Look at the construction of real clothes, and then use paper towels to drape on your doll to get the pattern pieces you want. Once you've figured it out with that, you can transfer to the fabric. You're really talented. I hope to see more from you.

How cute!  I love her little painted face and gorgeous eyes!  Cheesy

And she's posable, too, that's absolutely awesome!  With that and the removable clothing, she makes an amazing doll.

Thanks for all the sweet comments, you guys!

Great tip, craftewoman! I think I'll try this when I get brave enough to start trying more advanced outfits, lol.
