Meet Molly


Last year I signed up to do a virtual doll-making class with Juliane over at froken-skicklig, and even though I had made dolls before, I was nervous...... We had to commit to 7hours a week for 4 weeks. I think I took five.

Even though it was intense, I learnt so much, Juliane, really "sees" them, and thinks outside the square.




Molly is of good proportion, she sits unaided, has a life-sized head, and she loves piggy-backs

Afternoon tea in the garden.


I'm so glad I finished Molly, I was planning on giving Molly to Alice for her fourth birthday later this year. But Alice took such an interest in me making her, carrying around just the head, then the limbs, and watching intently as a sewed her features, that I couldn't place poor Molly in the present cupboard for six months, how gloomy that would be for Molly.
p.s the next post, will be more of molly.......

Molly is amazing! And she looks like such fun to really play with. I made my son a much smaller baby doll in the same style before my daughter was born, but I was working from terse printed instructions and the end result was cute, but well short of your accomplishment. I'm looking forward to seeing more!

(Um, and I'm not sure I've commented here before - hi!)

Oh Kerrie, Molly is very amazing. I also couldn't wait to give my doll to my daughter. And she loves her very much.

Molly looks like my dolls twin sister. But even twins have there own characteristics to tell them apart... The baret suits her perfectly. Well done!

Hugs, Martiene
