Hello, Everyone! I have started making my old friends, again - and would love to hear what you think of them  Smiley The pattern is my own, and it has taken such a long time to get right! But it was so worth doing. Before, their legs and arms were jointed weirdly, meaning they were hard to dress, and clothing looked bulky and unnatural. They are jointed in their hips and elbows much more fluidly now, which means I could even make all their clothes removable, which I think just makes them a little more fun, too!
I have made a little Autumn Trio, and had so much fun designing little outfits and matching all the fabrics - though I am not sure I went too far with the matching...!?
I think I still have allot of practising to do when it comes to styling, so I would be really grateful of any thoughts on their clothes!

This is Alice! Alice loves the Autumn, like her two siblings, Ida and Edward. She is an adventurer, leaving early in the morning and coming back late at night with sticks in her hair!

She has sweet little piggy tails (I make the wigs myself, too) And a button detail on her dungarees!

She has buttons on her sleeves, too! I used a blanket to make their fleece jumpers/accesories, so they are realllly soft! And, used the finished edge on them, too.

And this is Edward, I need a better photo of him, really! Edward is a fun-loving, sweet natured boy who loves Autumn the best. All those leaves for jumping in, throwing! Pumpkins to carve, and spiced apple cake.

He's got a little scarf to help keep him warm, and more buttons  Roll Eyes on his dungarees, too!

He has little brown mittens, which you can just about see!

And last but not least, Ida.
Ida is a calm, sweet little thing who loves all the glorious colours Autumn brings. She finds herself sitting for hours, watching the sun tilt and shift through the leaves on the trees, and enjoy that wonderful stillness, that is seemingly unique to Fall.

Ida's little Button peter pan collar

and her armwarmers! These were so fiddly to make!

They are just a bunch of 'lets warm up by the fire' siblings. Tea and blankets for three! And one for me !  Roll Eyes

Here's the three of them, happy with their pumpkins!

I love their little toes!!!
Thanks for looking/reading - I'd love any feedback.

Awesome job on all of them! All that hard work you put into perfecting the pattern really paid off. Cheesy

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time given to us.
