A sweet little labor of love ~


I can't believe it!!!
I finally finished my little art doll!!
I'm over the moon in love with how she turned out too...

Her dress came out just the way I had envisioned it ~
full of gathers and embellished with lace.
I loved using the large vintage doll dress to create it too...
The vintage lace was already applied and I simply made it work for her size.




I even made her a little crinoline slip...






She has a sweet headband that I made from the dress fabric as well.




I just love her!!!

She's listed HERE in my Etsy store!!


Wishing you a very happy and creative Thursday precious friends ~
hugs and love,
Dawn

Digging through my stash ~


I absolutely LOVE, love old doll clothes.
No, not those made overseas but those made by
mamas and grandmamas to please their little girls!!!

I have a teeny collection and thought I would go to it for inspiration
for a dress for my sweet art doll.

Guess what I found???
The tiniest pair of panties EVER!!! And they actually FIT
over the chubby belly that I gave my sweet girl dolly.

Then I went through all the doll dresses.
I wanted to find the perfect one that I could transform for her.
I found the most WONDERFUL antique pink one!!!
Now I have to try to make a dress for my small doll from this big dress...
but I think the color will be just beautiful on her!






Can you see it in your mind's eye? :)



Emily had a parent/teacher conference with Clara's kindergarten teacher and
brought our precious grandbabies by so she could go.
Murray and Clara BOTH flocked to Uncle Noah...and Murray just crashed!!!
Clara saw this and decided to lay down too!!
Uncle Noah?
He thinks he has the magic touch!!!!



Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday my sweet, sweet friends!!!
hugs and love,
Dawn

More progress on my little art doll!



My sweet art doll progress...
I'm using Suri Alpaca wool for her hair and have had to comb and clean it,
make little tufts and glue it to her head starting at the nape of her neck.

Yes, she's still a little bald on top in the photo below :)




I finally covered her entire head with a little bit of bangs in the front as well.
Here is a before and after photo after visiting "Dawn's Salon" ~
she's gone from Diana Ross....



to maybe a little Michelle Pfeiffer??? HAHAHA!




I love her so much already!!!
Now to make her a precious dress,
hair bow and maybe even some shoes to match ~

Happy Tuesday angels!!!
Hugs and love,
Dawn
