thanks Smiley She's finally ALL finished (added panties, boots a scarf and a pullover) and my partner is begging me not to start another one - he says it consumes too much of my time and attention! Hehe....little does he suspect...I don't think I CAN stop! Smiley

Feeling so crafty again, la la la la!

one week, 2 dollies...hmmm!

Waldorf Meets Punk  Grin

This one has taken me a bit longer, as I bought some skin coloured knit fabric - and then had to readjust my patterns when she turned out disproportionately large in the body and legs, due to the stretch!

Her dress is also alot more intricate, with everything properly hemmed and finished (a major achievement for me!)

And her hair? 550 individual strands, looped in one piece at a time...   O.o    but it was worth it - she has a full head of reworkable hair, so you can put it in whatever style you like! Smiley

Hey, not a bad first try! I may be able to find a pattern and link it here. A lot of time if the legs cross it's becuase your crotch (sorry to be crass) isn't wide enough.

not crass - useful! Smiley I can never figure out that part of the doll - should it be a V, a U or |_| square - and how wide, etc.etc. and how to make the seams stronger there so they don't wear thru/rip easily.

great idea! I HATE when you find something delicious and perfect and totally you - and definitely too small. Smiley Nice job on getting past that obstacle!

I enjoyed 2 days of hyperfocus (lol!) in which I finished my very first doll - she's a dancer (because she just won't sit straight, so her legs like to cross and her head is always turned) and her name seems to be Sophie.

and the close-up (no flash - she's so white it creates a glare!)

I don't have any nekkid pics, as her clothes are a mish to take off and put on!

My sons love her, but unfortunately for them she's going to Africa with a dear friend of mine, who's moving to Swaziland in July.

She's based on the Waldorf method of dollmaking, but I couldn't find a non-jointed body pattern for her, so I winged it and made my own.

She's not entirely Waldorf, given that I had only acrylic fill to stuff her with, and she has acrylic yarn for hair, and some lovely red lipstick and eyelashes (too much detail for a proper Waldorf doll) but she's lovely that way anyway.
She has a calico woven natural fabric for her skin (I had no skin-like knits around the house) and it didn't turn out so bad!
I also didn't have any embroidery thread, so her eyes and lips are a little rough - they're made from thin cotton thread, and it doesn't leave nice plushy filled-in areas like embroidery cotton (sigh).

Much as it suits her, I'd appreciate any advice on how to make doll legs not insist on crossing all the time - I'd like them to sit a little way apart for my next doll (gulp...I'm hooked on making more, but I hope I complete them!)

the pasta portrait reminds me of a guy called Jemaine, from a weird hilarious New Zealand band called Flight of the Conchords...have you heard of them?
