found a lighter color and used twice the thickness and it shows up much better. The doll got sent off to a 3 year old in Arizona today and will be there Tuesday. I think both dresses looked really nice and colorful and hope she will like them.
Thanks for the comments. I need to find eyes I can embroider by hand that will work better. I wish I were a painter ad could just paint on a pretty face for the dolls. I have gotten compliments on the simple embroidered ones however.
Would adding a bit of white to the brown lighten the eyes at all. Maybe try a piece of scrap first.
And, I'm sure any chilld would love a doll to cuddle at a very stressful time. I'm sure it will give them a bit of comfort. How sweet of you to send them a hug in the form of a doll.
you have to use html codes to add pictures to you blog. did you ever have a myspace? codes like you used there to post things to your page. I started a free account to photobucket.com. You create an account, You upload your pictures. It generates html codes. It's the 4th code they offer. Hope this helps. Or, if anyone knows of a different way, I'm open to hear it.
