Twinsies

Well, two more dolls and a bunny sold. I’m on a roll! Thanks for your support folks. These two girls are almost twins, except for their eye color- brown and blue. Do identical twins always have the same eye color? That’s something I’ve never thought of before.
Anyhow, I had two slightly different shades of lavender cotton, so I made them almost matching dresses with a big white ruffle on the bottom and green trim. They each have black felt shoes with tiny green buttons.

Here is brown eyed girl,

As this new venture expands, I have lots of ideas rolling around in my head, but not enough time! I would like to do more doll clothes- hats, coats, you know, lots of cuteness. But first I want to do as many different varieties of hair, eye, skin color as I can, so people can pick and choose on my shop.
The funny thing is, I’m having the hardest time figuring out how to package them for shipping. I’d like to send them in a cute little box, but can’t find any with the right dimensions that aren’t really expensive, and I’m trying not to add to my expenses. Any ideas?

  1. For my knitted stuffed creatures I usually find a small box pad it with peanuts or something- usually still stays pretty light so shipping is really cheap still. I had people save them for me, and usually it worked out pretty well. I wouldn’t do the flat envelopes, even the padded ones- my animals got really squashed.

      • Also- sometimes stores have- I know when I worked at Michaels we used to throw out TONS of little boxes that all of the misc. craft stuff came in. Maybe stop by a store and see if they have little boxes leftover?
