Monday, April 8

I've come a long way . . .

Today I want to share with you a couple of pictures
 of dolls I have made and/or costumed. 

This first set was made circa 1991, I think.   
At that time our daughter would watch the TV series 
David the Gnome every day while eating her lunch 
before going off to kindergarten.  
David and Lisa were a big part of her world 
so I made these dolls for her.
I am happy to report these 2 rustic clothespin 
creations are still on display in her home. 

Last week I shipped off two 1:12 scale dolls that 
I re-costumed on commission.
The gentleman was to be based on 
Nels Oleson from the Little House series.  
I think they turned out very well, and most importantly, 
the collector was pleased.  

It was a fun change from the mice and bears 
and all I kept thinking was how very 
LARGE 
these dolls were at just about 
twice the size of my mice.  

My worktable is quite full of more 
commissions this week, but I hope to have 
two new mice to show you in a few days.  
They will be a tea party set: 
a Lady Mouse with her teapot 
and matching potbelly baby mouse 
in the tiny matching teacup.

  1. Love the costumes you've made for the dolls and of course I love the gnomes. When you work on something that is in a different scale than the one you normally work in it does feel strange. At the moment I'm making a pattern for a doll that will be about 27 inches tall and since most of my dolls are less than half that I can relate.
    I'm looking forward to seeing your next mouse creations. A pot belly baby mouse?? Now that sounds like fun. Have a great weekend. xox

    1. 27 inches?!!! That's almost like making clothes for real children. Looking forward to seeing the result ~ especially with you new machine! xxx
