Well nearly lol
Managed to get my last 2 handmade gifts finished today.
My DILish loves the dolls I make, and asked if I could make one that looked like a dalmatian.
Well never been one to miss a challenge....
First I had to find some patterned fabric, but they were all too large a print, so I used a generic animal print stamp and made my own :D
Usually I know the character of my dolls as soon as I start making them, but this one was tricky to pin down.
Didn't even have an idea of how he would be dressed *though I knew he was a he*.
And what a cheeky rogue he turned out to be lol
Such a charmer, but more than a little restless...
he definitely has a "fairground worker" feel about him...all fun and frolics...
not a care in the world :D
Totally makes me think of a young David Essex.
His companion is a crochet chubby guinea pig ...so quiet and shy by comparison and headed to the same household :D
Hope your all sorted and finding time to relax before the festivities begin*I have already started eating my cake lol*
