Hi everyone! How cute are these dancing ladybugs! I had a custom commission from a friend to make dancing dolls of her daughters for their birthdays. They were in a show last year with my daughter as ladybugs and How cute are they!
I made wings for the first time. The is lovely black and silver dots on them!
I am in love with them!

This is the latest custom doll! It was so exciting to work on this doll but also a little nerve racking as I know the gentlemen it is of!
Made for a birthday present for one of his children, this doll captures the person he is. He is know for wearing his flipflops a lot so they needed to be added :) and he plays guitar in the church and so in case you can't guess he is also the minister! He sports a good goaty beard too :) !
I hand painted the guitar as my screenprinted version is more of an electric guitar and so thought that suited him better.
A delightful Mummy and Daddy dolls that I finished recently.
The Mummy had a skirt and top and the daddy had a great checked shirt.
I have acquired some new thin brushes so really happy with the hand painted element, like the glasses for this one.
Also working on a couple of dolls this week so hopefully share soon and also still working on birds for business client so lots of cutting out today! 24 to make in all so that's 96 pieces to cut just for the wings!
The plush fabric is beautiful to cuddle up to but can only be cut up double layered so no saving time on multi cut outs!
so off to work I go!

I loved making this doll! I was contacted by a Mother who had her own Daddy doll when she was growing up and was looking for one for her child. We chatted through what she was after, I loved adding the curls to the hair and pockets to the shorts and working on the right images for the front of the shirt.
These dolls where for brothers. I didn't have a photo of the Daddy to show you likeness but it was my first order for two the same! How great to be seeing double!
