She didn't turn out that bad

I re-stuffed her and I think that was the problem.
Far too much stuffing in there which was making her bulge all over.
I'm quite pleased with her actually. She turned out as I pictured her in my head (which makes a change!) and because shes only a small doll, it doesn't take all that long to make.
Plus I actually managed to make a dress!!!
I am not known for my dress making skills to say the least, even though the time I did spend at Fashion collage was all focused on sewing and dress making, but although the dress is simple, its a dress and it actually looks like one too!
I've got myself some elastic and I plan to experiment with expandable waist bands next.
Oh the excitement in this house. Its just unbearable at times.
Yesterday I had a big clear out of all my craft stuff and there are things that I need to get rid of to make some room.
So tomorrow I'm going to list some items that I want to sell. Theres a few pieces of jewellery, 3 bracelets, 2 necklaces, 2 pairs of earrings and 4 rings and then there are quite a few pairs of knitted slippers for babies and children.
I'm only going to sell them at cost price so there will be bargains to be had.
Come back and have a look tomorrow. Get yourself some early christmas presents ;)
