I'm having a go at making dolls for 5 siblings this week!
A big box of baby clothes arrived from New Zealand.
Each child's clothes in seperate bags with a photo and description.
Nerves of steel are needed sometimes, with the cutting up of (especially small) baby clothes! I definately have to be in the right mood to do it. I painted the faces first, on the weekend. Then cut their hair last night.
Today, I started on their clothes. Its such a challenge sometimes, to get the different elements of the sentimental clothes that I want and piece them together. As with most things I've been making, there is not much planning going on. Just get in there and have a go. Most of the time things don't turn out how I expect anyway! I'm hoping to get most of these guys done by the end of the week, as they need to be back in New Zealand in time for Christmas!
Do you plan when you create or see how things go along the way?x
