My Dollies

I’ve been making a lot of these dolls lately. They are my own design and so much fun because even though I follow the same general idea for all of them they all turn out so different in ways that I can’t predict. It’s like they take on their own personalities almost in spite of … More My Dollies

Bunny Rabbit

Designing and making this bunny is turning out to be a lot of fun with some unexpected challenges. I had a very specific vision in my head and this is how my first attempt turned out.
