Catching up time

You're probably thinking where have I been and why isn't any new posts on my blog... well, the truth is I've been slack and also busy with a reborn doll order.
Yep... you heard correctly, I also manage to squeeze a reborn doll here and there in between my busy bear schedule... :0)
I like to have a break every so often, so I can come back to making bears with fresh new ideas.

This is what the doll kit looked like before I started painting her (this kit is from Aleina Peterson, and the name of the kit is 'Shyann'):

... and this is what she looks like (so far), after painting her and having half her hair rooted:

To do the hair is a long process which I only recommend to people that have lots of patience and have knowledge of needle felting. This dolls have each hair inserted individually into their heads with the help of a 42 gauge, 2 barb felting needle.
I still have 4 to 6 more hours of rooting hair... !
Best thing to do while doing this task is to have some nice music in the background to listing and sing along with... :0)))

I'll add more photos of 'Savannah' (as her future adoptive mom calls her already), so you can see what she looks like when she's finished.

If you'd like to see the other reborn dolls I have made in the past, please check the following links:

She has the potential to look very sweet when she has all her hair. She looks as though it has rubbed off on the pillow. What patience you have Mon.
I look forward to seeing the finished doll. Hugs

Looking good! She has a very cute face but I don't think I could cope with all that hair rooting:o))
Take care and have a good week.
Big hugs Lyn xx
