All About Dolls!

Before Christmas I had my hands full whipping up these custom order dolls.  Aren't they adorable?

The three taller dolls are all 18 inches and I made them using a pattern from the Wee Wonderfuls book that I modified slightly.

All of their faces are hand embroidered and their hair is stitched on by hand.

As for their clothes I had to make up wee little patterns to fit their wee little bodies.  Since I'm no pattern drafter it was a bit of a challenge, but overall it was fun to see how I could take what I did know about patterns and how they work and apply them to making clothes for the dolls.

The short doll wearing the pink dress is a style of doll I made when I was first starting to take custom orders.  She's a pattern I made myself that I generally don't make anymore, but I made an exception since the little girl the doll went to has an older sister and brother who both have dolls in the same style, so I wanted her's to match.

I do take orders for these, and am willing to make them in whatever skin/hair/eyes/features combination you might want.  If you want a specific type of clothing I'm also willing to stretch my pattern drafting skills a bit to make whatever kind of outfit you want.
