Piggy tails



I made these cuties this past week because I wanted some female dolls made for the Bloomington Handmade Market.  I tend towards boy dolls.  I don't know why this is, maybe because facial hair is so much fun to sew.  I wanted these girls to be colorful and fun, the kind of girls who are equally at home romping around the woods and skipping rocks as they are at having tea parties with fancy china.  Let's never let our girls stop romping around the woods and getting dirt on their knees (or, if you are the pink haired girl on the top right that I just made, let's never let you stop getting dirt on your ankles, since you really don't have any knees to speak of).  Their hair is made out of fleece, which doesn't get all scruffy like felt does, and it feels soft to the touch.  Their hair is supposed to look a bit like piggy tails, not devil horns. 

I hope you're having a lovely week!
