Playing Dolls

I've been in dolly-making mode this week - it's fun to be back with the toy-stuffing again!  I really enjoyed making the first of these which I gave you a little sneaky peek of, last week.  When I made one though, I decided I wanted to make a little set of 3 of them for putting on my website . . .

They sort of evolved as I went along, although I had an idea of how I wanted them to look . . .

. . . a  little bit of vintage lace here, an  appliqued  flower there . . . they were a lot of fun to make :)   Each one has been finished off with hand-embroidered  features, and I added a little Scottish kitsch with the tartan ribbon (OK, actually that's the only ribbon I had to hand, but I DO love to mix patterns, colours, etc in a 'mixty-moxty' kind of way, hehe!).  They're now in my shop here :)

Better not hang around too long today, my poor laptop is beginning to creak and groan under the strain of my daily blogging, or more like from the amount of photos I've been uploading during Blogtoberfest - time to do a little computer housework I think!!

Bye for now
