This is something I have wanted to do for so long but always been busy with my dolls, So I thought today would be the day to make these beautiful handmade wooden blocks, I wanted to make them so I can use them in my photos and if anyone loves them as much as I do I am going to sell them on my website in the next week or so. So let me know if you are interested!
I will leave you with some photo's of my handmade wooden blocks.
Well after our Sunday family bike ride today I decided to finished working on one of the other dolls to go the betty this one is betsy I have not decided if there will be 3 or 4 dolls they are a work in progress.
I hope you love her just as much as I loved making her.
Well it's been a couple of days since I did a post I took a couple of days off I have been so busy since the beginning of this years working on my doll patterns and website I just needed a couple of days to recover.
So back to work this morning and this is what I have been working on little betty I have not done a black doll in a while she is going to have some friends I am still working on them but wanted to show betty to you. She stands 27cm 10.5"
Well I was not really happy with these two Olive Annies so I put them to one side and when I looked at them again this morning I was still not happy so I have made some changes I am not sure about the hair colour Should it be raggedy red or dark red? Please let me know what you think. Overall I am really happy with them now.
I have wanted to create a boy doll for a while and the things I wanted to use was the Michael miller dick and Jane fabric that I have had for a while and a vintage toy fire truck and I love using blue and red together! And his name was easy Sam I am. My youngest sons name is Samuel and he loves to read. His favourite books are Dr Suess and he loves to read "Sam I am" all the time. So this is how he come together! Little Sam I am.
Well this little boy "Sam I am" has been sitting around on my desk for a while as I have never made a boy cloth doll before and was hesitating about doing him but I think he looks just so cute he has a big brother coming he just needs to be dressed and a face done! so hopefully tomorrow I will have him ready.

So I started work on Gumnut Annie it just poped into my head make a little Gumnut Annie and this is the end product!
A full days work on drawing the pattern and then making her. I took a couple of photos to show you her I am so pleased. I will take some more photo's tomorrow outside to see if I can get a different look.
