It is always so chaotic here when I am trying to design a doll. Bits of paper here there everywhere making my heard whirl. Finally done the drawing next step is sewing, hope it will all come together smoothly. I usually don't have patience to sew things several times and I hate that part of doll making lol!

This is a goth doll I made for a challenge. Actually I cheated a bit. I had an unfinished doll which was for a purple challenge that took place a few years ago. I never completed it because I didn't like the way she was turning out. So I thought perhaps I could convert her to a goth. She looks much better now. At least I have finished an unfinished doll. Ummm... Makes me think now that perhaps I should go and look at my many unfinished projects again. Who knows they may change into something else.
What do you think?

Last month Judi Ward taught us designing the doll class in our doll club. I decided to join in the fun and decided to make a baby doll. I have always been reluctant to make a baby doll because I thought that it was not easy to paint a baby face. So this was my first ever baby doll that I have designed and made. It is a simple design but I found painting a baby face especially the eyes open was not easy. After a few tries I decided to play safe and painted a sleeping face. I will have to practice a baby face more if I want to make them more often.

Two years ago I took an on line class with Marlaine Verhelst. I finished the head and hands but got stuck on the feet. I did try but they kept going wrong so I put them aside to come back to them later. However the later became a few months, a year and then 2 years! Lol! Today I finally picked up enough courage and enthusiasm to get back to the feet. So here is the beginnings of two feet. Hopefully I will be able to finish them tomorrow.
I have decided that I am going to complete this doll no matter how odd the feet look lol!
