I've created things before that I liked. I've created things before that I've been pretty proud of.
This is the first thing I've made that has filled me with such joy.
I've always dreamed of creating something I felt worthy of labeling an "art doll."
This doll has been my muse ever since I first taught myself to sew in 2009.
She's been patiently waiting these past few years for me to figure out how to create her.
Sure, there's still some edits I want to make to my pattern and still lots of room for improvement, but that's part of the fun, right?
Anyway, I'm really excited to finally introduce you to Bliss.
She came out way larger than I originally planned...24" tall!
(I think I'll shrink my pattern some for the next one, lol.)
She is jointed at the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.
She and I had so much fun taking these photos!
She's the first of what I'm calling my Muse dolls...and I have a feeling there's going to be many more!
(Seriously, I've got a long list already written out of dolls I want to create!)
I can hardly wait to get started on the next one!
Hope you guys like her. :)
