My Creative Space - Thurs 26th April 2012

One of my all time favourite things to craft is dolls.  I love the whole process from fabric choices, right through to the very end.


I love how once I have finished a dollies face, I'm committed and she must be finished.   Might seem a bit strange but once a doll comes to life with her wee face there's no turning back and she has got to get finished.


Here's my latest dolly which I made for a lovely friend who's wee girl was born a couple of months ago.




The pattern for this doll is made by the very very talented Sarah from Dolls and Daydreams


If you are interested in her patterns, pop over to her instant download shop here 


I am planning on having a few of these dollies for sale by the end of this year so watch this space.

She is so lovely. I love how you have done the hair and the combination of fabrics. She really reminds me of a raggedy Anne doll my mum made me when I was little

Loved your comment in the "face" making you committed. They become little people once the face is on! x

I love the hair and your fabric choice. I love doll making too, especially seeing them come together. I often get very attached to mine and sometimes can almost not bare to part with them. Thanks for your kind comment over at mine. Cx
