I'm so so sooo excited about this new doll design I've been working on for Kit, Chloe and Louise dolls. I've been wanting for a while to make a new doll that could be dressed up, one that had a good body to make lots of cutie doll outfits for and I think this is her! She's got a very satisfyingly plump little body and great flippy arms and legs. I'm still not sure she's exactly right, although after using up a week of babysitting hours working on her I hope she's real close. I might rework the face some but I do love how simple it is. Less fussing with the face will leave more time for little dresses and slacks and pinafores and tights and whatnot and hoobiewhaties. Also with this doll I tried out a new way of doing yarn hair that is lot less labor intensive and I figured out a clever little bun thing (that I was so excited about that I think Tim may think I've gone a little around the bend) and it all turned out really cute and it wouldn't be too too hard to break down for instructions... so I'm going to work on Chloe and Louise next and if it all comes together the way I'm hoping it will, I think the three dolls with outfits will make a nice fat Put-together Book #4.
In other Kit, Chloe & Louise news, the Quilting Bee Stitchette is about ready to hit the shop. Probably mid-week. You can sign up on the mailing list if you'd like to be notified when they're added. Please keep in mind this Stitchette is a limited edition. When they're gone they'll be gone, if not for good, at least for a year or so. I'd love to have everything in stock all the time but we just don't have the resources to do that yet so if we want to keep adding new patterns to the shop some of them will have to be one run only. And you know me, always on to the new thing.
