anyhow i took the doll up to show what they can expect when i try again. they were happy with the babushka and are looking forward to her arrival.
it is the machine stitching i hate. see how lop sided she is?? and the base is not good enough either. i am going to have to read up on clipping as well.
i altered Johanna's front and base as i found it very hard to do the round base to make her stand. i am happy with the idea but i need to sew it better next time.
the ribbons are so darling! i just hope i have enough of each fabric to do her the same!! i hate choosing fabrics for other people plus my stash isn't that extensive.
so this little lady had a trip to toowoomba and back... the next one will have to travel in the post! eekk hope the ride isn't too bumpy.
thanks for following her adventures.
oh thought you might like to see what the new owner looks like!
she is so loved! smooches to you my baby Adelaide
