They say the first one is the hardest...

Well!  I had another doll workshop day yesterday with Yetunde and Jackie, and I must say it went very well indeed.  We didn't finish our dolls but we made enough progress that we can finish on our own.  There were a few challenges, trying to keep the important parts aligned and getting the wire into those little fingers, but I think the finished product will be worth it. 
This is mine, isn't she a cutie?  She has her legs, hair and head wrap...

I just have to attach her arms and decide on a dress style.  And... I just might make her a wee pair of underpants!   Hide that cellulite, girl!!!

I meant to take pictures of the process, but I didn't remember my camera until I was half-way to Yetunde's house and I didn't want to turn around.  She should have more photos on her blog

Until later, sew forth and sew on...


  1. I can't wait to see her when you get her all outfitted. But working with such tiny little dimensions is so challenging and takes a lot of dexterity and patience.

  2. I am so jealous -- what a gorgeous doll --such talent!! Can't wait to see her when she is done:)

  3. I can't wait, too! I had thought to make her dress the same color as her "body suit" but I might go with an entirely different color.

    Thanks for the post!


  4. I checked out her blog and it looks like you are learning from a very talented artist. Your doll looks great so far.

  5. Those ladies (dolls) just make me giggle all over. They are just so wonderful. And I am jealous that you have got such a creative teacher to work with. Fantastic job. Looking forward to seeing more and more. I might just have to stop quilting long enough to make a few of those gals.

  6. Linda...I love her...she is orange my fav color..her hair..love that...I used to be a doll maker...it is as addicting as you know lol...
    Oh please keep on it and show us what she will look like completed...love her to bits....cellulite and all
