….what an introduction to this little 15″ doll. You’ve already seen her in the felted state and here she is now with lovely gentle grey/green eyes and a mop of pink hair. Made with the Rosy Posy doll pattern but 1/3rd bigger. I think this is the last I will make with someone else’s pattern as I’m going to design my own, watch this space.
Connie is coming along nicely, but doesn’t want to make an appearance until she has hair – fair enough. However I will show you the colours for her outfit, it’s one of the best bits choosing colour combinations. So here we have a lovely grey/green linen (which matches Connie’s eyes), a couple of greys for her Ugg style boots and a choice of lovely Jamieson of Shetland moss greens – lichen, marjoram, such lovely names. As yet I’m not sure which colour her knitwear will be. Oh I didn’t tell you – she’s going to have pink hair!
Back to needle felting and this time a 15″ Rosy Posy doll from Lali dolls. I increased the size by 25% to get a slightly bigger doll. It still amazes me that I can stab away at the wool and then all of a sudden I have a 3D body part in my hands! Now it’s time to cut out the ‘skin’, then important decisions have to be made…..what colour hair? eyes? and name?
The sun was still out this evening when I got in from work, so out we went to get some photos of Aurelia for the Etsy site. She posed beautifully for me. Oh and I forgot to say – Persie has found a home, in New York. How amazing is that?
When you’ve got your PJs on you need slippers don’t you? Mouse slippers? Absolutely Aurelia. Made using a lovely easy pattern by Hopeful Honey. Aurelia is nearly ready for a new home so here’s are a couple of ‘Bedtime’ photos of her……….does that look like someone going to bed?
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 cute
