#500 - more poseable dolls

I figured out a way to print the dresses on these paper dolls -- I really like the results. All these are done with pictures I took myself. Above, a picture of some tomatillos I took around Thanksgiving last year? Below a sunflower.
Below - a collection of our heart pins.
Below - light shining through a wonderful glass bowl made by Matt Seaholtz.
Below - a picture of flowers growing in the yard.
And below - not a photo, but a paper doll made entirely from a "Fiddle Faddle" box!

Pretty good for post # 500.
I love it when I get into something new!
About 9" tall - $20 each. I'll cover the postage!

These are absolutely WONDERFUL! Your mind is constantly working, isn't it? *S*

I've been thinking of how to use some of my quilt fabric scraps for her dresses.

very cool! I wish you could also print on fabric like that...can you? I'd love a dress just like the one on doll #1;-)

Two responses-

S - I don't see any reason not to glue fabric onto card stock, and then use the dress pattern for a cut pattern. I'm no seamstress, but I remember my grandmother pinning those tissue patterns onto fabric and just cutting. Back when DIY was about the only affordable option.

A - These folks do custom digital fabric printing - I've been planning on trying them for about a year, but haven't gotten around to it! http://www.spoonflower.com/welcome

The other way with fabric and paper would be decoupage...I have some Gel Medium around here somewhere.....

I've heard lots of good things about Spoonflower.

By the way - In this day and age, those of us who have a lot of old tissue patterns use them in layers of collage. Never throw anything away.....*S*

Fantastic - these ladies look great!

It was so nice seeing you and Cheryl yesterday! Thanks for stopping by - and for the purchase.

I'll be in touch about a KNK Groove demo, I promise. Probably in January.
