Last year, I started a handful of custom dolls including an Elf for our shelf. I started two for my nieces and their kids, but didn't finish in time for the holidays. But, they're finally done and off to their new homes!

They started as Ever After High Blondie Locks dolls. They were rerooted with handspun yarn and commercial spun, and they got a repaint with watercolor pencils and chalk. I drafted the pattern for their leather slippers. The dresses were made from a pattern by DGRequiem, accidentally altered to be a pencil skirt instead of a bubble skirt. Happy little accidents.

Wow! What a fabulous, custom look. Love the hair and also the wardrobe. The little boots are too cool!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
