Tiny Dolls Finished
I finally finished the tiny 9" little Izannah babies. Everybody always asks the question, are the small dolls harder to do than the bigger dolls, well my answer is, yes, yes, yes they are! After sewing ( MOSTLY HAND SEWING ALL THOSE 4 OUTFITS, 4 BONNETS, 4 PANTYLOONS, SLIPS AND CHEMISES ) I am just about blind. Haha No joke though, after sewing 6 days, all day, my eyes were so blurred, I couldn't see the writing on the computer very well. Every morning I can see good again, but the eye strain is very hard on you. They are a happy group. The white dresses are made from vintage cotton dotted swiss, the old fashioned kind that I love with the cotton tuffs. ( hard to come by). the red striped dresses are lined with solid red, all the dresses are fully lined. I thought the red stripe was old material, as I got it at Kewanee store in the real old materials, but I liked it. I guess these red dresses look like Christmas or Candy canes, but I still like them. A wonderful peace has settled on me now, as I can move on to the normal size dolls and the big dolls. I have learned a super easy way to make the most beautiful bare feet. It is ( SUPER EASY ) and I'll show you how in my next post. I have to draw up instructions. You can make bare feet lots of ways, but these are strong and pretty much stress free and plump and nice.
