Polly - She Moves


I have met the most amazing artist and nicest people of late. Mostly through my art doll team ADO. Nicole from MealyMonster recently taught me how to make this 'pin doll' as she called her. She started out like this, with buttons at her shoulders and hips which allows her little legs and arms to move slightly. I really like this style doll, it gives her a bit more character and life. My daughter certainly think so as she can't seem to keep her hands off her and keeps trying to make her do the jig:) Dressing her was a bit more difficult but I worked it out I think.

So thanks again to Nicole, for opening up this new world of dolls to me!! I think I'll be making more.
