Meet 'Six'... I called her that because she is the sixth doll I have made and the name 'Six' kind of stuck while I was making her. Maybe I will rename her at a later date when her personality starts to come through a bit more.
The idea was to make a glamourous doll with a ball gown type outfit. I was inspired by the yarn I used for her hair and the deep red colour. I spend a great deal of time in yarn shops hunting out yarn that would make fantastic hair and it's usually the hair that inspires the rest of the doll.
As with all of my dolls, I have made her a few outfits to choose from. All of the wardrobe pieces are designed by me except for the pink shoes, which are a modified version of Fiona' McDonald's doll shoes from her 'Babes in the Wool' book.
Jack Sparrow has taken a liking to Six... (Six has borrowed a dress from Jemima's wardrobe).
They spent Six's first day with the gang hanging out together.
I have so many doll projects at the moment. I have definitely been inspired this winter! I'll have more to show you in a few days....
