Meet Aurelia

This wild haired girl is my latest doll, she is soft bodied and very cuddly. This is her modelling her brushed cotton PJs and awaiting her slippers to warm her feet. The pajama pattern comes from Pixie Faire who do lots of amazing freebies, however this one I bought. Oh and check out the buttons – they are Autumn leaves and really cute2017-08-10 17.28.14

Persie in the garden

Now Persie’s dress is finished, I scurried out into the garden (communal garden I live in a flat), and tried to photograph her with natural light and soft focused flowers – I’m not that good at this, note the blurry doll and sharp focused flowers! However I was joined by a kitten who came and sniffed her – I missed the perfect shot and got the kitten up way too close, but I’ve added it below as it made me smile.

Question for you – Persie needs a hat, what sort of hat should it be? I’m at a loss at the moment.

Embroidered dress

Quick update on Persie’s dress – it is denim and is going to have an embroidered front and pocket. I used a tutorial by HandiWorks adapting it for the small area, and used two shades of green and yellow. The pattern for the dress is by Antique Lilac she makes really easy to follow patterns which are perfect for dolls. I used her pattern for Persie’s petticoat too (minus the sleeves)
