That, I believe, was the catalyst for my late-onset doll obsession.
I knew, though, that I would need to make this Princess Julia doll sooner or later. I just wasn't sure how to.
But anyway, I figured that out, and here she is:
She doesn't look exactly the same as my original scribble, and she's not perfect, but I'm pretty damn pleased with her. I did all the beading around the hem of her ball gown and across the top of the bodice, (which is made of a piece of velvety ribbon - so soft) and I made the tiny little bracelets and necklace and tiara she's wearing.
And I made Julia a bracelet to match the doll's ensemble.
Here's a closer look at the little tiara - wire and beads.
And that's what I've been up to when I'm not cooking things.
I should probably do laundry or wash a dish...but this is way more fun.
