New Pocket Pixie WIPS

Shelly's Pocket Pixie pattern is such a delightful doll form, and a wonderful pattern to embelish.  Here are three new WIPs (work in progress) that I've been playing with.














Felt applique hearts and cheek color for Amanda.  Her hair is Reynolds Lopi, a bulky weight single ply wool yarn.













Embroidered flowers and wool boucle yarn for Black Eyed Suzanne (of course!)















More embroidered flowers, and a very fuzzy mohair yarn with slubs of blue and yellow for Petunia. 


 Felt is such a wonderful dollmaking medium, and these little dolls are a delightful canvas.

  13. Hi, Beth! I'm not actually anonymous, I'm Kai. But Blogger is being NAUGHTY and won't let me post properly! Grrr! I want to tell you how adorable your dolls are! And I think you are just one of the most generous little people EVER! I have downloaded so many of your free doll patterns (all the crocheted ones) and clothing! THANK YOU! You're a gift to the Blogging community!

    1. Sometimes I will sell a doll, if I have one available and the person is agreeable with the price. I would much rather encourage you to make you own. These dolls are extremely easy to make, and it is so satisfying to make something uniquely your own.
