I think my favorite stage in making a doll is when I have finished the body. I like to look at the sweet figure that has no face, hair, or any clothes. It's like a big blank canvas before the artist gets to paint it.
I like to imagine what the doll will look like finished. Will she be a redhead? Brunette or blonde baby? What eye color shall I put? What clothes will this little one wear?
I guess I miss having little babies around so through the process of making dolls I get to be a "new mommy" over and over. Giving birth to a new doll is oodles of fun.
Today I got this little brown haired fuzzy baby on my workbench. She will go to a little girl's house this Christmas...Fun!
