Hi, I finished her yesterday, and finished her outfit today. Her name,Akia, means First Born. This was my first time ever using a sewing machine, following a pattern and making patterns on my own (for her clothes and shoes). She isn't perfect, but I really like her!

I couldnt take great pictures today due to rain and miserable weather, but anyway, here she is.

PS - Any comments and constructive critisim appreciated Wink

WANTED TO ADD: I couldnt get any pipe cleaners, so her tail is also made from the wool I used for her hair. And I brought the wool like that, I am going to go back and get different colours to I think Tongue

I love her shoes and the ribbons in her hair!  Cute!

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!

Let the baby crafting commence!  Cheesy

So cute, those shoes are adorable.  I like her expression in the second photo.

I saw the ribbons on her arm and thought "bondage poppet!" but alas, it was just my dirty mind.   Cheesy

She's so sweet looking, and her shoes are cute! 

Visit http://ghilie.wordpress.com/ for the poppet pattern.

You might have something like that to look forward to, my friend has requested just that.

Excellent job, she's so cute, and I love the angle her head's at, makes her look really sweet!

She's adorable! You did a great job! Especially for a first timer.  I like your style.
Bondage, hummm... She looks too innocent to me.

Thanks for your replies! Bondage, hmmm, might be an idea Tongue

I would really like to take better pics when the weather clears up and post them, these ones don'tdo much justice, as some details cannot be seen properly...
