Dolls: I Want You To Meet Jasmine!

   I absolutely adore her with all my heart; I think she is my favorite. Don't tell Becky, Amanda or Sheila!

   This time the details on her bangs are a little different but they were pretty much impossible to photograph due to that super saturated pink. You'll have to figure them out from this picture or take my word for that. Again, I used my novelty yarns and sparkly cords to give her a super cute mane.

This picture doesn't make Jasmine justice.

   However, I made a couple of minor changes to the way I put her together. One of them is that I made her naked this time so her clothes can be played with and I made her a super cute tiered peasant dress. You see that? I'm already talking clothes. LOL

This time I used Kona Chocolate for the skin. I love it!

   The other change was the shoes, my other dolls have felt shoes but I painted Jasmine shoes with my handy acrylic paints. I like them better this way; I think they look dainty.


   Oh! and this week I received my tracer light box! I have a template I drew myself for my doll's faces, I don't like drawing directly on the fabric because I want the dolls to have similar features and I want them to be as symmetric as possible. It made it super easy to transfer the face template to the fabric. Prior to its arrival it was pretty much impossible to transfer faces to fabrics other than Kona Flesh. Now I can paint anything on any fabric color. Yay!

  2. Very cute and good craftsmanship, too! I made a doll when I was about 12... I still have her... she's VERY primitive!

    1. Thank you Suki! The tracer light box is just a white box with a translucent surface and light bulbs on the inside, it provides back-lighting. It makes it easy to trace anything from one surface to another given that they're both translucent enough to let the light through. Better?
