Is something wrong with this picture???Wee wonderfuls doll ... I ran to show my hubby... and his first response....
"She either needs a TRIM? or a WAX!!!!"
AHHHHHHHHHHH....... so true!!!!!!!!!!... Sometimes
MUST to attach her pigtails to her head for fear of someone thinking the unthinkable!
Lesson Learned: Sometimes you really SHOULD follow the pattern.
#2.... Why did i choose dark brown hair?? The pattern specifically called for a light coloured wool. But no... i wanted brown didn't I... Well what do you get??
Greys!! Wiry Grey Hairs on my sweet little doll.
Lesson Learned... Stick to lighter coloured wool when making hair for your dolly.
#3.. In the Wee Wonderful Book she says to stuff the body firm. So i really did stuff her firm. I'm actually surprised the seams haven't popped! But there is a difference between firm and rock hard.rock hard and now that she is made... some of the stuffing imperfections have become a little obvious!... Poor darling. She has a bad case of the double chin...
Lesson Learned.. Stuff Firm but not too much and check the visible spots, like the face for imperfections before you have finished!
Good thing our children are so little and innocent. Indi never even noticed anything wrong with her dolly.
Lucky for me... She thinks shes just perfect...... PHEW!!
I was thinking too, if i was going to make another one of these dolls, I think I would make the doll the same girl. But, one side make her sleeping... and the other side make her awake?? The awake dolly can have play clothes and the sleeping dolly have PJ's?? .......maybe one day!
Its funny how we venture out and make something totally new every once in a while. Come to think of it... We really learn little sewing lessons with each project we make. My first quilt is full of em!! Mistakes that is and I'm still learning..... You would think after making this little sunshine I would stick to quilts...??
Nah.. I'm off to tackle an Amy Butler bag next. I have NEVER made a bag before... so wish me luck!!
