It's been awhile since I listed a new item as I've been busy filling orders for customers. A family friend ordered 2 gingerbread dolls and these were fun to make so I thought I'd make one for my selling blog too. The doll pattern is by Sweetmeadows Farm. The lillipop is my own.
Doll measures 14 inches and lillipop measures 7 1/2 inches
Lollipop is not attached, but upon request I can sew it to the doll's hand.
Doll is made from muslin, stuffed with polyester and painted. Collar is made from warm 'n natural and I've sewn a salt dough heart button to it.
Her nose is stitched and eyes are done with prismacolor pencils and sprayed with a matte clear finish so it won't smudge. Mouth, eyebrows and lashes are done with a fine point permanent marker.
Lollipop is made from muslin and stuffed with polyester. It's been painted and sanded and has a sprinkling of German glass glitter. It's tied off with a red and white gingham bow.
Doll's head, hands and feet have painted icing.
Her apron is full of happy lil gingerbread folk.
Her bow is made from same fabric as apron
