My New Obsession!

I really only wanted one..just to satisfy my curiosity why people go crazy over these dolls! Well needless to say my doll family is growing and more are coming!lol...It must be their eyes, or the cute little clothes and shoes they wear or you can buy or make! (they have lots of free sewing, knitting, and crochet patterns on the web for Blythe..really cute). You can also customize them, like carve their lips, paint the eyelids, change their eyechips, and much more. So I thought I would try.....
This is a Little Big Eyes doll that I started on (practice doll before I attempt customizing blythe). I took here apart, sanded the shine from her face, carved her lips, nose, and philtrum. Still working on her and will post pics when she's done.




I'm also rerooting her with angora mohair which I dyed with kool aid and still have alot more holes to fill!





Just an idea of what she'll look like. I forgot to take pics of before and after but if you want to see what the Little Big Eyes doll looks like, there's some on ebay and flickr.


Never too old to play with dolls!!

Wow! I love pink hair and that is especially GORGEOUS pink hair. What size Blythes are those?
Do you have a particular place where you are getting them?
Lots of love,
Cindy

Hi again, my friend,
I looked at the first picture again and you've got some Littlest Pet Shop Blythes there!!! I just got two of them and I love them. I have the little redheaded one, and the fun n sun one.
It looks like you are having so much fun. : )
Oh, and I've become really interested in the LaLaLoopsy dolls, too, and just got my first one. What a little sweetheart she is.
Love,
Cindy
