I have made a few dolls over the last month or so for various swaps.  Now that they have all been received here are the photos.  I designed all the patterns myself.

Gothic Flapper.  Same scale as the pirate doll.







Geisha
Approximate height: 13 cm.


Back



Pirate
Stands approximately 25cm tall.
The sword and pistol are made out of MDF and were made by my husband,  I painted them.


Enjoy.


I made another doll for a swap.

Mermaid


enjoy.


Edit:

Made another little doll for a swap.  This one is a wood sprite.
Wood Sprite.

Those are really cool!  I guess I won't ever get over liking dolls.  Nice work on the details!  What kind of fabric did you use on the bodies?

Wow! I love the pirate and the flapper, you could totally sell those if you don't already.  If you don't mind me asking, how do you sculpt things like the face? Out of what?

I use quilting homespun in flesh tones for the bodies.

I do sell my dolls. And I have won quite a few doll shows as well. 

The nose is cut into the pattern.  To define the face feature more you use a technique called needle sculpting.  It basically means that you take a needle and thread and stitch back and forth through the head to pull areas of the face in.  It means that the head needs to be stuffed very firmly.  You can also needle sclupt other areas of the body to bring out features breasts, bottoms, navels, dimples on knees, etc.

This is not surprising!  Cheesy
Very impressive, especially the pirate.
I was wondering how you got her to stand up? Is she just stuffed really well? Does she have a skeleton, so to speak?

No she doesn't have wire armatures (skeleton) .  I stuffed everything really firmly and all the pieces are really sewn together well  with lots of small tight stitches.  Because she is a smallish doll,  she can stand reasonable well.  Larger dolls tend to topple over if they don't have armatures.

I adore the Pirate, but that's because I'm partial to pirates. They're all very gorgeous, though.
