The Doll Adventure inspired by Tree Change Dolls

Recommended Posts

thank you everybody for your praise :heart:

 

Next i am planning to dress and shoe the two dolls whose faces i had done done as part of my first trial. One is going to my little grand niece Hanni, who was handling Gesa’s doll with so much awe that i realised she needed one for herself. And one is going to my little old lady who told me she would love one :lol: and then there are a few new arrivals who need cleaning. :wink:

 

I have managed to stop buying new dolls for the time being, it was quite addictive :lol:

The yellow swimsuit is darling! Is that lace or sock yarn? Better you than me. I just got an order of yarn in pale colors and some whitewith flecks. The idea is to give my vision a break from darkish colors. When it came I was so pleased.. Without really having any colorways or theme in mind I ended up with mostly the colors of Hydrangeas and it's foliage. My favorite flowers as they always remind me of my Great Grandma. Ther is blue, pink, lavendar, greenish, and all shades of those colors, plus some tender greens. I can't wait to get started. :manic::knit:

that does sound beautiful! i love hydrangeas and have several in my garden. Those set into the soil have all turned bright pink :lol: but i have two blue ones in pots. i love the colours at all times; when they are about to fade, they get these amazing shades between blue, purple and green … and even the pink ones get blue when you dry the faded heads.

 

the swimsuit is sock yarn. Yes, lighter colours are so much easier on the eyes, aren’t they?

 

i didn’t think i would manage, to be honest, but it went okay.

 

i bought some pink sock yarn now, because i am about to dress my little grand niece’s doll, and her favourite colour is (of course) pink :lol:

 

oh! and i dug out the fabrics from the FOP fabric swatch :lol: i never made anything with them :blush2: so many of them will now turn into doll’s clothing. There is a pale green piece with tiny fishes should make a really nice little dress :yes:

:roflmao: using rescued fabric to dress the rescued dolls should work VERY well - and of course the color for the grand niece should be pink :heart:

I am in SUCH awe of this project. When I shared the original lady's video on FB I was so in awe of what she had done to these dolls that I wouldn't have even dreamed of attempting something similar. I still think I would really struggle with the face but I love the idea of trying to make the little outfits.

 

Such a beautiful, beautiful project. Bravo, seriously. I amazed.

thank you :smooch:

 

i think you would have no problem at all at doing the face, everything that goes wrong can be taken off again.

 

I have four dolls with new faces - two will keep them, one needs different eyebrows, and one needs a completely different face because she looks like a bitch :lol:

 

i have seen so many brilliant project of yours, i am completely sure you would have no problems at all.

 

:wink:
