The Little Ladies are Back!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Hope you're all having a wonderfully creative week:)  Just a quick post to share some pics of the Little Ladies and Petite Poppet I'm working on.  Two of these dolls are custom orders (the Pink and Brunette) and the other two will be available for adoption once they're completed.


This is as far as I've gotten today - they really take a  L O N G  time to make!  I'll be starting on their outfits tomorrow and I'm hoping they'll be ready by the weekend.  My mommy dearest is making the little cardigans as well as one of the custom outfits.  You'll notice that the Poppet still needs her little face painted - that always makes me nervous!


Pinning their hair on...  I think they look like princesses with beaded crowns!


All sewn up and ready for their hair.


And this is where it all starts!  Stitch by tiny stitch...

Hope you'll pop in again to see how they're progressing!
hugs,

  11. Shelly, your cloth dolls are my very favorites! These girls are just delightful, and it is always fun to see the pictures of them as they come to be.

  12. Thank you Wendy, Vicky and Beth! I'm sorry I've taken so long to reply, my dear Nannykins has been in hospital this week as they've been trying to stabilize her kidneys and heart. She's doing much better now and is home at last and very happy to be here! At 94, things don't work like they used to!

  13. do you paint AND embroider their faces? your creativity is amazing. I absolutely adore all of your things and have tried a few of your patterns myself.

  14. Hi! Thank you Jesse! Yes, I do both painting and embroidering of their faces, though I always feel nervous when I paint them! It's much easier to remove stitches if I've placed them in the wrong spots than it is to remove paint:)

  21. Does anyone know the length of the little ladies dolls pictured above?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Can you also tell me the length of the Woodland Elf doll, I didn't see it listed. Also, is this doll sewn on the wrong side and then turned inside out?? Or are all the stitches on the outside, hope I'm making sense. Is there anyway to contact the owner directly other than using Facebook, sorry, I don't like Facebook, old fashioned I guess lol.
