This little gnome is a special order for Robert at www.mahardrygoods.com . He requested this months ago but with the move and general craziness I wasn’t able make him until now. He really is one of my most favorite dolls that I’ve ever made. I sculpted in a chin and larger gnome-esque nose then sewn in some white boucle mohair. His hat is attached and I made a basic outfit using velour. His limbs are articulated so he can b posed in many different ways. I jointed them using my new, spiffy doll joints. They take a bit longer then jointing using the button method but the doll is SO much sturdier. I also made 2 new babies and a mermaid for him, all should be on his site in a few weeks.
I’m working on 2 custom dolls next week and then just ‘stocking’ up untill the baby makes an appearence. I’ve entered the stage of pregnancy where fear of labour has been replaces with a mix of really, really wanting to meet my our new baby and wanting my body to be somewhat normal again.
