Then I cut them all up and made little flaps, for you guessed it, the edge of her dress. If you have been glued to flickr all day like me then you will have seen these already. Today has been a succession of stitch, cut, assemble, photograph, post on flickr and repeat again.
Then they were pinned to the lower edge and machined into place. This particular process is so scary, turning it the right way round hoping it is all in place, nothing stitched upside down or caught in the seam etc etc. Fortunately it turned out o.k. No snags or upside down embroidery, phew! In all her glorious finery I give you doll number three , in the shop now with her delicate. femminine lace head band.
You all know I want to move permanently to doll world, in fact I am considering forming a support group for doll making addicts, ''doll anon'' or something, however, I have other stuff to do, nice stuff, good stuff, an order for a bridesmaid gift. That will be underway tonight and you will all see it first. Then I am going to make for July, but as has been pointed out, I could make dolls for July! Yay!!
I went blog visiting last night, it had been ages, I am amazed at how much I have missed you have all been so productive. I may not come often but I love the suprises I get when I do visit, here's a big ''aren't we clever and hardworking to each and everyone of you, oh and me too''!!
Monday 3pm. Work in the morning, I am so depressed!! I have been reading articles on etsy ''how to give up the day job'' They say you should list constantly so today I have listed this and this.
p.s. Miriam, I can't seem to comment on your blog, I try and try, sorry!
