The Start of Dolly Funess

I think this is the start of something…

Within 24 hours of making my first doll, I somehow managed to crochet another! I thought I had the crochet bug real bad before, but now all I can think about is how many cute dolls can I make, and what color combinations look the best and how I am extremely low on 6mm black eyes and I’m frustrated that almost all my beige yarn is gone and WHY don’t I have more natural skin tone looking colors?

Seriously, Millie has got to calm down on the crochet. Eventually. Nahh, I think not.

My second doll is temporarily named Jelly Bean Jean, because I like the little ring it has to it. I originally wanted her to have a name like Ginger Snap Curl or Polly Petal, but still working, my first doll still doesn’t even have a proper name. I really like this doll, gave me the chance to experiment with adding shoes to the outfit, smile, freckles, a longer dress, and the curly hair that took me a while to figure out how to attach them to her head properly. I forgot that I wanted to add eyebrows….oh well, plans for my next doll are already in motion, which include adding crochet flowers that I have been wanting to try.

After seeing Madagascar 3 and ending up meeting my bf’s mother for the first time to help them move furniture (in a halter dress, not my best idea) I impatiently wait to see if I passed or failed the First Impression test. But overall a birthday well spent. Now, for once I find myself snuggled in bed before 11 p.m. and ready for sleep, goodnight! As always, thanks for reading 🙂

By the way, anyone a total genius at naming items? What do you think I should call my dolls?

  1. I think your names are cute, I like names that hint at an obvious feature like ‘Ginger’ because that would make ordering them easier….assuming you’ll make enough for us to order! ;)–and have you thought about any boys or superheroes? these are just adorable!!

    • I’m glad you like them am certianly working towards selling these dolls.
      I hadn’t thought aboug making boy dolls, that’s a brilliant idea actually! Hmm now I have even twice as many dolls to create 🙂 thanks!
