The title of today’s blog post says it all: I’ve got a new doll, and I’m having fun making stuff for her!
While I type this, it’s actually Sunday night, less than 12 hours before this posts on ChellyWood.com. Normally, I like to prep my blog posts a week or two ahead of when my blog followers see them, but I’ve been WAY behind during the holidays…
So with that said, I’m hoping to post tutorials and patterns for making all the goodies you see in the image at the top of this page, over the course of the coming week.
The best news is that I have a new doll: Azeezah from the Queens of Africa doll collection! You can imagine which famous lady-in-pink can easily swap clothes with her, as she stands 11.5 inches tall and has pretty standard fashion doll body measurements.
A special thank-you to the Queens of Africa doll company. They have given me permission to use images of their dolls in the book my agent is pitching to publishing companies, so if I never hear back from any other fashion doll companies, I have a lovely alternative for modeling my designs.
This week I’m hoping to share with you my patterns and tutorial videos for making her skirt, her shirt, and the stockings that hang next to her fireplace. Next week I hope to share a tutorial video on how to make the little fireplace with its lovely hearth.
