International Dolls

Hello dear friends!  I've been working on a new collection called International Dolls and just wanted to share the first three that I've made so far. 


From left to right:  Japanese Geisha, Dutch Girl and a British Palace Guard (or Beefeater).  My plan is to make a set of eight - not telling what the others are, so you'll have to pop over soon to see what they are;)

I also completed another collection called Cotton Candy Dolls.  Many of you will recognize Julip from my last post, but I've added two more dolls to the set and each has a different outfit and little pair of shoes. 


Once I've finished creating all the International Dolls, I'll be working to make both collections available as patterns.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend:)

  19. Thanks so much everyone! I used a wool blend felt that I purchased from: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BenzieBazaar, for their bodies and their hair is made from Tussah silk roving that I found here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/OpulentFibers. I made each little outfit from hand woven wool felt that you can find here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/quiltingacres or here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThreeSheepStudio.

    The patterns for these dolls will be available soon - I hope!
