Firstly I would like to thank all who sent me links to the on line sites they use for material. I have visited each and every one and guess what?.....not one of them sell material that's yellow with thin blue stripes OR blue with little yellow stars. I have emailed all the sites too and the nearest I can get is yellow with black stripes and blue with white stars. I've bought some blue with white stars and have tried colouring in the stars with a yellow pen..
It works but is time consuming....thankfully these dollies are only small so I will only need small amounts of fabric for their clothes.
Here is the one Mr Tumble lookie likey doll that I've made so far and I have to say I rather like him. I am still trying to make some dolls to keep here for the Grandbabies to play with but my little dolls are proving so popular with little people that the one you saw on my desk last week has now found a new home with our Funday Monday friend T's little Granddaughter who paid us a visit on Monday this week .....She was such a sweetie and I'm such a softie.....she left holding her dolly's hand and dangling her by her side :-)
So this is what is on my desk today...
I'm making a new doll with stripey tights, a pretty pink dress and think she will have yellow hair in pigtails. I rather like the effect of using stripey material for the legs but think the next one [or maybe even this one] will have shorter pants on so you can see her legs [I've pulled them up for you here to show off her tights]......can you tell how much fun I'm having?
I have finished all the Wedding stationery for now and just have the order of services, table place settings and favour boxes to make now. We have done M's Wedding dress fitting and I just have to shorten it a little and I have the first of the Bridesmaids coming for a fitting on Sunday....it's all so exciting.
I hope you have a peep at the post below to see what my much older sister has been up to this week :-) Leave me a little 'hello' comment before you pop over to Julia's blog to join in the WOYWW fun.
Have a great week. Stay warm and creative.
