Made my first doll

25 posts in this topic

Every year my mom and I always make something for each other. Last year I made her a mini Christmas shoppe and she made me Mr. & Mrs. Robinson for my mini house.

So this year I made mom a doll. She is only about a foot tall and has her favorite blankie (I knitted) and her little rabbit. Her body is wire but her head, hands and shoes are all clay. The only thing left I think is maybe eye lashes but I'm kinda skiddish to add them in fear I will mess up. lool DO you think she looks ok without them?

Now I just have to give her a name...

Great job Jenn!

Careful....I thought I was only going to make one doll and now I always have one on the work table.

You said you used clay, did you make it with aluminum foil inside or is it solid. I made a marionette about that size once and it was too heavy.

Just curious.

I missed this topic before Christmas. I love the doll you made - she's a real character. What did your Mum say? Did you manage to make anything else?

Great work :ohyeah:

I can imagine if you didn't make one for your aunt she's going to want one. Tht little doll is just so winsome & lovable! (and no, I didn't think she needed eyelashes!)
