Pipkin


Here's the little doll I designed last week......meet "Pipkin". She's a 12" (30 cms) tall cloth doll with jointed hips, shoulder and neck and  her head is air-dry clay with clothover, painted with artist's acrylics. I made her a knotted mohair wig and she has a cotton print dress with matching bloomers and knitted cap, cardigan and socks. Her little red shoes are leather. I've taken a silicone impression of her face and saved the body pattern in case I decide to offer this doll as a kit in my Etsy store.

LOVELY!!!
alright woman...you have to at least wait until I get Moxie done! Or you'll have me starting another project. :)
You think you can give me some lessons on squeezing time out of the day? You complete your little ones so quickly!
p.s. - i got the material for the clothing. YAY!

It looks like you are going gangbusters on your "Moxie", Ron! (I had a sneaky peep, but was too sleepy to leave a comment)
How to squeeze more time out of a day? Don't sleep! Which leads to that other problem of being too sleepy to leave comments! Ya can't win :)

Oh my gosh! The knitted socks! They're just perfect.I love hand knitted clothes on child dolls. Partly because they show that extra bit of love ... and partly because I can't knit.

Pipkin is adorable beyond words and her outfit with the knitted cardigan, hat and those sweet socks is perfect for such a darling little girl.
