Just one more plug for my shop before Valentine’s day. I know, I keep trying to go in new directions, but I just keep ending up going back to the dolls. I’ve sold a couple of my new ballerina dolls, so I thought I would make a Valentine-y one just for kicks and see if I could get one sold. This time she’s a brunette- in pink. I think she should be called Rose.
I’m rather pleased with how the hair turned out on this one. A kind lady I know gave me a large bag of yarn she was never going to use, and this one has a nice ruddy tint to it. It is also kinda curly, which I love.
I felt that Rose needed a few roses in her wavy locks.
Dainty ballerina feet and fluffy tulle- just because.
I was dissatisfied with this first little tutu I made, so I decided to add another tutu as an overlay. It ties on with a satin ribbon and can be removed if desired.
You’ll notice that I put a few little red rose “petals” in the layers of the tulle because, well, “Rose” and also because, well, Valentine’s day.
Oh, and don’t forget she has a wire framed body, which would help her pose in a display case if perhaps you are an adult and want an excuse to buy a doll for yourself. (pssst, you wouldn’t be the first)
See, she is looking pensive now, wondering if she will ever find a new home. (My daughter has taken a fancy to her and has already tried to eat her several times) So she wouldn’t mind being adopted…..
