    Is it bad that all I'm trying to do is read your library shelf? That Ballerina is so sweet.

    :lol: I'm doing the same thing, but caught myself before I turned my laptop sideways...

    Very nice dolls. I'm curious, being a dollmaker myself, did you sew or glue on their hair?

    I usually sew on the hair in a cloth doll. For plastic and porcelain, I use a super grab tacky glue, after making a wig or even directly on the doll if I am using roving. I use very little glue so the hair stays soft.

    Thank you for liking my dolls.

    I sew the hair on. Zack's hair is sewn on the machine using 4 strands of wool and sewing the figure 8. Then I sew it on all over the head and then clip it.

    I think it would be fun to make some dolls or animals again.

    Hi Gwyn, I use my my powdered rouge or a pastel chalk that comes in a little plastic box. I apply it in a circular motion using my pinky.

    Hi Beckyw, making the stuffed animals is so much fun now that they have the fleece. Our Jo-Ann's has a bargain bin right in the front of the fabric area with all of the left-overs of fleece, so I have little pieces of different colors for almost nothing. And fleece means that nothing has to match! I hope that you do it!
