A fun request

Just a quick little post, since I haven’t blogged about dolls in quite a while.

One of the things I love about my little shop is the ability to do custom jobs for people.  My doll business has been slow, but I do have the occasional order trickling in, and this one was creative.  It was from a lady who is expecting her second daughter.  She asked me to make a big doll and a little doll, as a fun way to announce to her oldest daughter that she was going to be a big sister.

She wanted them to match, but not be identical, and she wanted autumn themed dresses, since both the girl’s birthdays will be in the fall.

This was the first 18 inch doll I have sold.  Exciting!

And her little sister.

I love it when people give me a lot of freedom to design the dresses.  I had fun with these leafy, ruffly ones.

She also requested that I stitch their names on the dresses.  I think she has awfully good taste in names, eh Domekia?

Yay for sisters!
