This is the one I decided to begin with. She is called a Spirit doll, pattern made by Beth from Indiana. Her blog is called By Hook, By Hand. She these are her designs. What drew me to these little dolls was that they have clothes that you can also make. INCLUDING UNDERWEAR!!!
This may sound a funny reason to be drawn to this pattern, but I remember when I would be out with my mother and we would see a doll at a store or rummage sale or flea market, it did not matter where, If she saw a doll she liked, one of the first things she would do, is turn it upside down and look for the underwear. It seems that all well dressed and well bred dolls as well as young ladies should always have underwear…..
mine turned out nicely I feel. but of course a different hand doing the same work; mine did not come out exactly like Beth’s, you will notice when you go to her website and see her’s.
I have not yet made the clothes for the doll but I do have the supplies already and when I get the chance I will begin making the little underwear.
When I finish I plan on making the tea-cup size dolls that Beth has on her website. Do any of you do this as well?… I mean you haven’t finished one project and you already have in mind the next one you want to try? When I catch myself doing this I have to make myself stop because if I don’t, I begin to feel like I am already behind and I go nuts.
I have to concentrate on the one project and try to not get too many ideas in my mind at once, so I can thourhoughly enjoy the current project.
I hope you will all go to see these cute little dolls on Beth’s blog, and will enjoy making them.
