Time to make a new dolly! Where to start?
Why the hair, of course, my favourite part.
Hmmmm, the red seems to be calling…
Next, roll and mold her head and crochet her wig.
I decided to needle felt her a chin and add some chub to her cheeks.
I have run out of thread and sewing machine needles, so her body and limbs are going to have to wait.
Next to choose a colour palette for Daisy Mae.
I love fall colours, though I cannot wear them myself, but I think they will suit her perfectly!
A floral print dress with pink hues, a forest green felt coat, and a creamy white poncho and hat.
Oh, here is her little face!
If you know my dolls, you know I just love green eyes with red hair, must be the Irish in me!
I decided to tweak my body pattern a bit to let her sit a little easier on her own.
She has a bigger tush, as well as a longer torso, arms and legs.
Looks like Daisy Mae may end up being about 17 inches tall.
Oh, look at you sitting as pretty as a picture!
Daisy Mae’s hair is still not sewn on and she still needs feet, a belly button, and tushy, but she is looking beautiful.
I had a friend over who collects dolls and she suggested that Daisy Mae needs bigger feet…bigger feet it is!
And longer legs too, Daisy Mae is now nearly 20 in.
I just couldn’t resist giving her a pinchable tushie
She has just had her photo shoot and she looks so gash darn pretty! Stay tuned in the shop, she should be uploaded any day now
