I HATE putting up a post without pictures but I have to wait til Halloween to show you what I have been up to! This is going to be hard because I have been having so much fun creating!!
1. I have finished the room (aging the walls, inserting doors, painting...etc)
2. I have made one piece of essential furniture (not saying what it is!)
3. AND I have finished my second doll I have ever made.
Here is what this doll-making trial has taught me:
- I am SO not good at smoothing clay. I think its good until I bake it and then it looks like the surface of the moon! Bumpy!
-Sewing small clothes are hard... esp when your sewing skills are such that it takes you 30 mins just to thread the machine.
-Human proportions are hard.
-If you force a piece of clothing over a doll head hard enough IT WILL BREAK OFF!
So this doll may not be a permanent part of my collection but I am proud of the end result all the same. Especially for doll #2. I know I will never be a professional doll maker but I would love to be able to make them for myself in a pinch!
So that's your mid-month update. Not sure how much longer I can wait to post photos but I am taking several along the way! Hope you are all having a wonderful fall! hugs, Ara
