You may have already opened your Christmas doll, but the holidays aren’t over yet! We still have New Year’s to celebrate!
My Christmas doll was adorable, but came with a stained head from her wig 😦
See more pix of her here
This next photo comes to you from http://poupeesdeline.blogspot.com/. She made a little house for her Cherie and Paola Reina Liu. The wonderful teapot is actually a people-size tea infuser. I also like the little touches like ikebana (floral arrangement) and that their belts are different colors 🙂
I had really grandiose plans for this post, but you know how sometimes the universe seems out to get you? Yeah, that was this week. Nothing went right with my crafting projects, so let’s just call it a miracle I managed to get this done.
Note that this outfit was originally going to have authentic undies. You can make them from batiste/thin silk using this skirt pattern, and the top from the karate gi. Shorten the sleeves and leave off the collar, or make it a contrast color. She’s missing shoes too and doesn’t have a bento to eat! Like I said, the universe was out to get me. 🙂 Try here: https://jenwrenne.wordpress.com/2013/02/03/hinamatsuri/ for food and shoes you can adapt smaller.
