Doll (finally) done!


If you found your way here from WOYWW, this is what you will be here to see:

The lovely Jasmine, in her leopard-spot jammies, sitting pretty in the chair, awaiting DDs return home from school.  Here is a close-up of her face:

and a look at the character she is meant to be based on:

She is the 2nd doll named Jasmine, although I am hoping for some success in convincing DD to change the original Jasmine’s name to something else, as she is an M&S big rag doll and a name like, oh, Emily, fits her MUCH better.

On the home front, DH is in the car, heading towards Heathrow with the in-laws.  A bit of a giggle, but when we were discussing travel arrangements, and I asked DH if he would drop them off or put them in a cab, as there was some question as to whether he would have to go in to London today.  FIL quipped “Best drop us off – you don’t want to leave anything to chance…”  Overall it has been a good trip – we always enjoy seeing them and it happens far too infrequently.  I am 100% sure Jasmine would have been still sitting naked with paddle hands rather than fingers and those diva-ish jammies had MIL not been around to help out!

I now have three weeks work of crafting projects to catch up on, a crop this week and perhaps one in a couple of weeks, a mountain of laundry to do and not a sunny day in sight, and a nearly full hard disk of backlogged TV to catch up on (I must have two full weeks of Eastenders waiting.)  Oh woe is me.  I should just admit nothing will be “back to normal” (whatever THAT is) till mid-January and give in…..

  1. Great job MA. She is just lovely. So much nicer in proper 3D than the cartoon version.

  2. Fabulous work! She looks just like the picture! I had to come back to see if she was finished! Amazing!

  3. Wow. You have finished. Her face is perfect. Are you going to make any more of the dolls? I’m determined to make the Japanese one.

  4. The doll is awesome….I know you are so proud! And how sweet to have it as a family project!

  5. WOW This is wonderful and it looks just like the character. great work

  6. She’s fab MA – my DD recognised her! As for giving in – yeah, may as well, just roll with it – although I agree, the laundry situation is out of control – I do hate winter!

  7. Oooh the doll is fabulous! My mum used to make me dolls of the very same type when I was younger.. 🙂
