    My Girls.

    Hi , these are the first dolls I made. I struggled at first. I was hopeless at doing noses, as you can see. It took me three hours to get the head onto the body on the first one I did. I can't tell you how near I was to dumping her in the bin.

    I think your noses are great! Kinda like Cher's or Streisand's.

    Seeing your doll creations is one of the high points of my week. Just love them! They kinda have a Dolly Parton-esque thing going on. Lots of shape, atttitude and bling.

    Just to answer your questions. They have all left now.All as gifts ,but to very good homes. The pattern for these particular dolls was done by a friend, but I have seen patterns very much like them at Dollmakers journey .this one particularly https://dollmakersjourney.com/horrox.html. Hope this helps.

    I'm so glad to hear that all of your "girls" found good forever homes. Would you ever consider making & selling them?
