I made 2 special little Apple Dumpling dolls this week.... so cute and tiny. The upload will be today, 11/11/11 in my Etsy shop at 4:07 pm EST (sorry for taking the 11 thing so far, but I love the symmetry in the numbers lol) Each doll is $88 US plus shipping and handling. They will probably be the last of this size for the year.
This is Margaret... she has peachy skin and deep blue eyes. I dyed her curly boucle hair myself, with some help and encouragement from a few of my doll making friends. Margaret is a bit shy but she is begging to be picked up and hugged. She is wearing a sweet halter dress and bloomers made especially for her by The Melamoose Co. http://www.themelamooseco.etsy.com
This is Harlow Applestocking. My girls decided all dolls with braids are Applestockings :) She is the first Dumpling I have done with almond shaped eyes. Her hair is the softest fuzzy black mohair and will do best if kept in braids or buns. Harlow Applestocking is really good at listening to secrets and she is always ready to keep you company with her sweet little smile. She too is wearing an outfit by The Melamoose Co. https://www.facebook.com/#!/themelamooseco
And here is a nakey pic of both dolls together on my kitchen counter :)
I am toying with the idea of doing just one more upload towards the end of November with more dolls instead of doing a couple with just 2 dolls each. My hope is that this will give folks a chance to select the doll that is right for their family. There will be 12 inch dolls and hopefully some 15 inch babies if I can get the pattern exactly the way I want it. I will post more about this as we get closer to the date, as well as some preview pics along the way.
Hope today is a good one, and thank you for supporting my mama made business :)
