Yesterday, I worked on some doll designs for my shop. I have a pattern for a 15" that has been altered to my own preferences, I have a pattern for a rattle/teething doll (the prototype will be for my son), and a pattern for a Wishy-Bum Muse doll. I am hoping to improve my embroidery skills with the last one ... at least until I can raise the money for an embroidery sewing machine.
Today, I have more ideas that need working out, more sketches that need to be made, more patterns designed, more supply lists made, and more packing to be done. I think I will also be making potato leek soup today. I have been craving a rich, creamy soup for a few days now.
I think I will upload a couple of sketches. I want to make sure that Verdandi Needleworks is about artistic soft sculpt as well as Waldorf inspired and Vintage rag dolls.
I also need to start getting some ideas going for clothing - dresses, shoes/boots, sweaters/coats, hats, etc. What I want for the look is a bit of old world mixed with simple classic styles. Hopefully, the creation of doll clothes will help me to make some designs for my kids. I would love for them to have more mom-made clothes.
I've probably rambled enough. So think I'll sign off for now.
