Thanks  Smiley  I'd like to try making some that are smaller. The only thing better than tiny things is super tiny things!

It kinda looks like a mushroom, right?

      I've been meaning to make some worry dolls for a long time so I'm glad this challenge was here to kick me in the butt.  i started out making a tutorial, but it was taking forever to finish them with all the stops to take pics. So here are a few of the pics and no tutorial.

I peeled apart twist ties and wrapped the wire in tissue paper to make the bodies. In this pic you can see how I put together the dolls with skirts.

All the dolls finished:

At first I made the faces sort of detailed with different color eyes and smiles and whatnot, but they were creeping me out. Also, the worry dolls I had as a kid were just eyes and a mouth kind of slopped on so I wiped off those creepy faces and did vague faces. Much better!

I made the house/box out of a Teddy Grahams box and painted it with acrylic paint that is seriously about 10yrs old. I love projects that use materials I already have. No money spent and no long bus rides to a craft store.


Here it is with a ruler so you get a sense of it's size.

Thanks for looking!

Could you post a pic so we can see where the embroidery is? All I can think of is to iron some light weight fusible interfacing over the whole thing on the inside to cover all the itchy spots

Maybe I should have mentioned that the skirt isn't finished lol. I was experimenting with different lengths and it's held up with pins and bobby pins in that pic. But, the horsehair braid sounds like a good idea. I've never used it before so it should (hopefully) be fun to try. Thanks for answering!

That makes sense, thanks

  I mostly love this dress, but I feel really square in it. The ribbon helps a little but I wondered if having the plaid be diagonal on the bottom part of the bodice would help more? I have a pear shape and I want to emphasize my small waist.

Pretty, I like the balance between sexy and cute. I'm making a dress from seersucker that is unraveling like crazy and I had gotten discouraged, but thanks to you I'm going to be brave and try using my mom's serger to finish it. Also, your dog is cute Cheesy

Ugh, I have that problem too. I bought this:      http://www.target.com/p/assets-by-sara-blakely-womens-high-waist-shaping-pantyhose-assorted-colors/-/A-13385037#prodSlot=large_1_2        once and loved how it protected my thighs, but pulling it down and back up every time I had to pee was a struggle plus it was hot. So I cut the legs off, so I had two tubes of spandex or whatever it is, and wore just those around my thighs. They stayed in place for the most part and were much cooler because my lady business could, um, 'breathe' I guess lol. Anyway, if spending $16 on these just to cut them apart seems like a waste, then maybe you could find some thin stretchy jersey to try it with? I hope this helps.  Smiley
