They're ready!! Romeo and Jerome spent the morning patiently waiting while I added their finishing touches! For Romeo, I made a tiny bouquet of roses, wrapped them in brown paper and embelished it with embroidery thread and a light dusting of glitter. I then sewed a little ruffle collar around Jerome's neck and beaded it with tiny mandarin orange glass beads. He's holding a teeny present, made with Japanese felt and embroidery thread. They both measure about 3.5 inches tall. I decided to play around with my original pattern when I made Jerome, mostly re-configuring the head, and I'm quite happy with the results. I kinda like that little squished head look! Hope you like them:) Available in my etsy store now.
A while ago, I participated in my very first doll swap with a lovely lady in England. We each made a doll and sent them off to each other in the mail. Well, yesturday, Emily arrived in the post and she is lovely! You can visit Lo's blog here: http://lafolieemilie.blogspot.com/. I quite like the idea of doing another one in the future, so if any of you are interested, please let me know.
Hope you all have a very relaxing weekend!
