Happy Monday! I do hope everyone had a great weekend. Last weekend, in the midst of cleaning, sorting and organizing our garage... I received a text from a friend/client asking if I could make her another doll. She has ordered more dolls from me than any of my other friends or clients, so I'm always tickled when she asks!
However, I stated.. we were in midst of this huge undertaking and I dreaded telling her 'no'. It just so happen that day, I had gotten a few packages that needed to be taken up to my sewing room. Once I was up there, I saw them... I had 2 dolls already made! How could I forget that?! I was very happy to let her know and let her chose which one she would like to purchase. Needless to say, when she texted me back that she wanted both of them, I was so overjoyed, thrilled and so tickled pink! Yay!
If you read the comments, I do state that not everyone likes my dolls. I do understand this logic to some degree because I do see a lot of dolls that I do not like. For real. I'm just happy these little beauties will be off to their new homes soon! Thank you Sarah for your continued support and all the love you have these dolls!
Here are a couple of the dollies from the past in the making and as well as the finished product. I am very thankful for all the orders I've had for these girl dolls (haven't made a boy yet) and very appreciative of all the positive feedback about them! THANK YOU if you have ordered one in the past!
I would like to share.. the doll pattern comes from a stack of patterns my Mother gave me years ago. The doll & clothes pattern are homemade; cut out from parchment paper, although it does not come with a printed face and/or any instructions at all. After I made these last 2, I really decided not to make them anymore. But then I get a text, and how quickly I'm reminded of how much I enjoy making them! Also, I do have a few ideas on how to improve the pattern more to my liking, but have not had the chance to start that.
So wish me luck with that! Thanks for reading!
Until next time,
Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and liking how you do it.
