Meet My Girls...






I am so excited about these. I made them as Christmas gifts for some of the younger girls in my life. I think they are the sweetest things. I forget how much I paid for the clothespins but I think it was a couple of bucks for 30. I also bought a heavy duty craft glue that works on practically everything. It was also a few bucks. The fabric for the clothing was scraps I had from old stained up clothing. I used paint for their faces. I tried using sharpie markers but it bled a lot and that annoyed me so I painted the sweet little faces on.

If you are interested in making your own they are simple. There isn't really a method, though. I think you have to apply your own style. I spent a lot of time looking up these dolls on line and they are all dramatically different. If I get around to it I plan on making a doll pouch for the girls. Of course I will post photos.
