Frankenpose

FrankenposeShe’s underway… will probably take longer to cook than a real live baby, but I’ve started my ‘from scratch’ pose doll.

So I’m using the pattern from Dolly Dolly, and, although I can’t read Japanese I have enough experience (I hope) to figure out what to do… except for the head. It says cut 2, but I’m not sure if it’s 2 for the front and 2 for the back. And then there’s a bit about shaping the face with wads of stuff and putting stockinette over the top… I guess I’ll just have to wing it.

I’ve been hand sewing because I can do that in the lounge room whilst listening to the tv, but I may haul out the machine to finish her. I can’t wait to dress her! And do her hair and paint her face. But it’s my beloved’s birthday today so I should really go and spoil him instead of myself :-/
