So sorry if you all keep coming back to see hand made kids clothes and stinky fowl...
I've been obsessing over these adorable dolls. So of course I'm spending a not-so-normal amount of time trying to make a doll just half as cute as hers are. I purchased a vintage pattern which is the doll on the left. It looks a little like a monkey. The curves of the face are a total bitch to sew. I wanted a wider face so I fiddled a bit with the pattern. The curves are still a bitch. I am not good with pattern fiddling but I am pleased with the outcome so far. I still need to tweak it a bit to get the cheeks rounder. I haven't even worked with the body yet. Once I stuff the bodies I will probably have a lot more fiddling in my near future. After the bodies I will have to work with the limbs. I already know I will be changing the arms and legs quite a bit. I'm pretty sure when I'm done the pattern will barely resemble the pattern I purchased. If the doll turns out kind of cute and anyone wants the pattern I will happily upload the final pattern. I'm stressing about the eyes. Oh how will I make those gorgeous eyes?
