Mindy Monday... New Party Dress

Today Mindy was given a new party dress and a pair of shiny silver ballet shoes to go with it. She is very happy with her new outfit!

Both the dress and the shoes were designed by me.

Have a great week!

Mindy Monday

I have decided to introduce a second part to this blog to make the posting more regular. Every Monday I will post about Mindy.

Mindy is my desk friend... she hangs out on my desk with me every day and always has an opinion on something. I'm really enjoying having a small doll like her because making things for her is really fast and she doesn't take up much room.

She is based on Fiona McDonald's Travel Doll pattern found here.

Introducing Mindy, she is 10.5" tall and has blue eyes and lots of black hair. Her body and hair are both made from Panda Magnum Soft 8 ply yarn. Her eyes are paper glued on felt and painted with clear gloss to seal them (I wasn't in the mood to design a sewn face...). Her mouth is glued felt and her nose and eyebrows are sewn.

Her dress is designed by me but the shoes are a pattern by Brackenz Kraft and are found here.

Lots more to post so stay tuned!
