I love that she has a simple expression with a painted eye and mouth. I love that the legs can be all in the same fabric, all in different fabric, or any way I would like. I love how her long, thin legs give her a fashion doll and how the legs change a bit depending on the amount of stretch in the knit I use but she can still wear the clothes made to fit many 10 inch sized Waldorf dolls even though she measures in at 16 inches. That is a big deal for our house, we love toys that can share clothes. When you put old clothes on a new doll or vice versa, it is almost like getting a new toy... anything to stretch the play!
I am super excited that she can wear the Lil Sally dress pattern by Lil Blue Boo http://www.lilblueboo.com that was originally designed to fit the doll I made for Boo back in May 2010. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150190209160243&set=a.334216880242.340889.334216215242&type=3&theater
I love the idea of taking something you are not using anymore and making it into something fabulous, so working with Ashley was a blast!
So why start up a new site?
Quite simply, I want my rag dolls to have their own place in the world. They are individuals, and individuals deserve their own space. This blog and the shop I am setting up on BigCartel will both be dedicated to Honeydotz Dolls. After all, "Individuality is Healthy!"
I have big plans for my take on the rag doll ... BIG plans. Please stay tuned! If you are on Facebook, please click on the "Facebook Tab" above to be taken to the new Honeydotz fan page... when we reach 500 followers, something pretty fun will happen!
These gals will be available in the shop (link above) on Thursday evening, time T/B/A for a special introductory price of $75.
