"Hello, Dolly, well, hello, Dolly.
It's so nice to have you back where you belong.
You're looking swell, Dolly,
we can tell, Dolly...."
Sorry, I just got caught up in the moment!
This week at Dutch Dare, the challenge is:
For The Kids-It can be anything for a kid.
Have lots of fun with this. As you can see I did! I LOVED paper dolls as a kid! They were my favoritist!
(That's a word!) LOL! I could play for hours dressing them up. I would cut clothes out of magazines too! So this was a blast from my past and they were soooooo
much fun to make.
I made these paper dolls for an adorable set
of twins in our congregation. They are girlie girls and will have loads of fun with these. I made two dressers to hold the dolls and five fun dresses a piece. One girl loves pink and the other loves purple.
I am still working with my coloring. I was able to do most of it by myself, but since it was so much skin, I was having trouble making it come to life. So with just a swish swish here & a swish swish there, Dorcas did her thing with her prismacolor pencils & these girls came to life! Thank You Girlfriend!
These Paper Dolls were a freebie by Mo Manning from Paper Craft Planet. She is offering her in her store, Just slightly different.
All the dresses are paper pieced
Made the stands myself- Cut out half circles with a
Nestie, attached to doll, put slits on bottom, then insert a strip of paper folded in half (to make a triangle shape)
There are several templates out there for the sidestep dresser. I watched Jackie's video to get the concept
and used Dorcas' measurements because she uses 6x6 which is what I like.
They are velcroed to the dresser and of course they match their dresser because what girl does not want to match their dresser? LOL!
