Finally Ready For My Shop Update

I finally finished everything that I can get done right now for my shop. I have more in the works but I'm not going to stress myself out more than I need to. The 2 challenges I did recently really took massive amounts of time away from making these dolls. But hey choices..anyway glad I did do them. My listings with go live either tonight or Saturday morning but I thought I'd show here on my blog what I'm offering since a few people asked to see ahead of time.

 These 3 were made last year before I really figured out what I wanted do do with this pattern I designed. I think they are kind of adorable and I hope they find good homes.

Hansel and Gretel. These two started my fairytale doll craze. I'm selling these 2 as a set.
Red and Wolfie. Selling these two as a set. Some friends said I should offer singles of these too so I made another set to sell as singles that are slightly different.
Single Red Riding hood.
Single Wolfie. Changed his head and made lederhosen.
Cat Witch is being listed too.

Finally I Can Show My Finished Piece...

I really enjoyed working on this project and am very pleased with how she turned out. She'll go up for sale in my shop when I do my update probably at the end of the month. She's 19 inches tall and completely hand sewn.

So I Did It Again...

I joined another challenge even though I haven't finished the dolls for my shop update. It's so easy to talk me into creative things, I always take on too much. There was another challenge for a new group I belong to, but I only got as far as a sketch. Anyway here's what I been up to.

It's another Every Witch Way Lane challenge. This is a shorter time frame one due at the end of July. It's Witch's Hat, Black Cat and Broomstick challenge. You can make what ever you want as long as it has those elements. I'm doing a black cat witch, maybe it's too literal but that what I felt like doing.

A very basic beginning sketch.
Working out the face details.
Sculpting and stuffing the face.

I had so much fun embroidering these eyes and actually came up with a new way to do my eyes.
Here she is stuffed and legs attached. It's super hard to see the face details since they are black on black. I hope to get better pics of her face later cause I'm loving it.
 Here's the little 3D fireplace. This will be inset in the dress. There will be a little cauldron cooking away in there too.
Since she's all black cat I decided to do bright colorful clothing. I embroidered and appliqued the boots.
The start of the apron dress. It will be embroidered and appliqued. There will be a blouse, underwear and maybe an underskirt too. Oh yeah and a witch hat and broomstick.
