little people in progress

I keep forgetting to link up a WIP post so, I thought I’d share my progress on these small people, today.

I’m making a scalable basic jointed doll pattern and these ones range from 4 1/2″ – 11″. Whenever I post a doll like this I always get comments about nudity so (to set everyone’s mind at rest!) I’ll mention now that I’m hoping to work on hair and clothes asap and get the pattern finished up in the next week or so. The smallest three (4 1/2″, 5″ and 5 1/2″) are going to live in this caravan, which is a WIP itself and hasn’t progressed since my Really Random Thursday – the Blue Peter Edition post last week. If only there were more hours in the day…

What have you been working on this week?
Happy Sewing!

    Janine, what patience you must have! I love your little people and look forward to seeing them with hair and clothes! I think they will have fun in that dotty caravan.

    the nudity remark made me giggle, because I have three elementary aged boys who have recently learned what 'streaking' and 'nudist parks' are :) you could always make a 'welcome to the nudist park' sign to put beside the camper for all those who make nudity comments about your dolls :) I'm looking forward to seeing continued progress photos of your doll project!

    LOLOLOLOL @ the “Welcome to the nudist park” sign idea – love it!! Cute little dollies – I just cannot imagine working with pieces that tiny – my fingers and eyes are groaning at the very idea!

    Oh my…..look at all those 'rudey nudey' li'l dolls all sitting in a row!! Too funny!! I am fascinated as to how you will garb these delightful dollies!! AND…..that spotted caravan…..'tis absolutely charming!!



    I had a similar childhood to yours, we had a field at the back of the house that we called the conker field and in it was an old disused shoe factory and wood factory – you should have seen my collection of soles. The wood was used to help build my camp, which was actually the neighbour's old greenhouse at the top of the garden – now that was a childhood.
    Your caravan is brilliant and I'm sure your dolls are very excited at the prospect of their new home, that they made wander around nude if the mood takes them. May the Blue Peter child live long within you.
