Working It Out

Clothed and nekkid!


With a view to offering this new "Pipkin" doll as a kit in my Etsy store, I have made a silicone mould from the original "Pipkin" and slightly modified a couple of things that needed improvement in the pattern. From the mould I will make half-completed doll heads to sell with the pattern and instructions. Now I need to write up the instructions in a clear and comprehensible manner, so I have been taking progress shots as I have been making this second doll. Quite a lot of work goes into creating a set of instructions - they need to be clear and concise, but have enough information so that someone with limited dollmaking experience can follow them easily. I find that clear photographs are very important (worth a thousand word, right?)
So hopefully, this will be ready next week or so: meanwhile here is a teaser!

I love this doll and am sure the kit will be perfect when you've gotten it ready.

Writing instructions must be a nightmare; things that seem clear and obvious don't always work when someone else is trying to understand them. I don't envy you this job at all. But the doll is simply lovely, she(or he)looks so sturdy and solid, like a real toddler.

What a lovely little doll.

Pictures are really important for me anyway:) I just finished an on line doll class and it was the pictures that helped me most.
