Doll Continued

The main body of the hat is now sandwiched between the two rims. Pin and sew the rims together. Decorate the hat as you wish. Embellish.
Cardboard, glue stick and felt. The main body of the hat is clipped and glued between the two brim pieces.
Hat Components
Wire used to measure and create the shape from around the head ready to be traced onto cardboard.
Wire around the head for the shape of the inner brim of the hat.

Doll Continued

The fabric paint i will use for the boots. paint 1 layer, leave it to dry, lightly rub and add another coat. When they are dry, cover the painted boots with clear nail polish. Nice shiny leather look.

The leg/shoe dissected. The shoe part is what i will use to trace on the leg part to be painted later.
Leg wire cut and the end of the wire bent in on itself for safety , put through the leg. Stuff through the heel carefully and ladder stitch the top of the leg to the underside of the doll.
Do this with both legs.
Sewn, cut out and stuffed the front part of the shoe leaving the heel and the leg unstuffed.
Drawn boots onto cardboard. trace onto doubled fabric. Sew around shape leaving open at the top and the heel. The wire of the leg is going to be in the centre and it makes it easier to stuff up from the heel.

Mim Art Life
I want to make something lovely with my own two very creative hands for you....

Here's the deal:

I will make something special for the first 5 people to comment on this blog.

If you would like to copy and paste and do the same on yours, go for it! I am willing to post overseas (I am in Australia).

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. (but I know you will!)

2. What I create will be just for you, with love.

3. It’ll be done this year (2009).

4. I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be. It will be something made in the real world and not something cyber. It may be weird or beautiful. Or it may be monstrous and annoying. Heck, I might bake something for you and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that’s for sure!

5. I reserve the right to do something strange.

6. In return, all you need to do is post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your blog post.

This is mim's take on it.

I love this Idea so count me in!
The only problem is that i am yet to have more than 3 respond to my post at the most! So if you read this then change things for me!!!
I promise I won't be making something strange or monstrous, or bake anything, I am into cute, cuddly or practical.

wedding dress ideas

This is my great Aunt Rosemary in 1952. not so very different from the style we are looking for.
What my daughter wants is one similar in style with a softer look over skirt.
