Baby Evie


I decided to try a built up face and painted body to create Baby Evie. She is constructed from muslin, interlock knit and fiberfill, with a face sculpt of cotton soaked Mod Podge. She is painted with acrylics and Mod Podge. She is 22" head to toe and wears a purchased wig. She is jointed at the shoulders, hips and her head turns. I made her cloth diaper, socks, shoes and blue dress; which is trimmed in pin-tucks, silk ribbon embroidery and seed beads. There are 18 panels in the skirt. Bonnet and panties match dress. All my original patterns.


Special Mention by Voters.  Why...

I really love the technique using modge podge but the costume was nicely done.

I liked that she shared the steps in making the doll. I had never heard of soaking cotton with decoupage or painting with it either.

Baby Princess of the Green Earth


Baby Princess of the Green Earth was designed by me. The body is a basic baby doll pattern found in an old House and Garden Magazine. I changed the pattern by adding hands with fingers instead of stumps, and changed the flat/pancake face to soft sculpture. I used the color of her eyes as my inspiration to dress her in leaves. The leaves were cut from purchased silk flowers. "S" crystals were added as fingernails and a few were glued on her body along with butterflies, a dragonfly and other iron on decals. Her ponytail is adorned with the word Princess across the front.

Baby Princess of the Green Earth is a green baby and her mission is to inspire us all to practice being green whenever we can in order to help save our planet Earth.


Special Mention by Voters.  Why...

She is truly part of this environmental change and so creative!!

Viewing this doll, it must have taken much time and
imagination. Baby Princess is not the ordinary doll because a message
is being conveyed here to save and protect our planet.

This doll supports the current "green" awareness and is just adorable. The attention to detail is outstanding!

Why This doll represents in so many ways what we are facing today - the green ecology concept.

I was very impressed with the depth, dimension, and detail the modifications added to Doll.

Baby Princess of the Green Earth is so original. The doll is very pleasing to look at. She has her own original style. I have never seen such uniqueness!

I love the way she gives out a message to everyone, not only to love each other but also to recycle and love the planet we live on.

Little Toby

Meet my little guy, Toby, who's sporting two new teeth and a brand new outfit. He's fascinated with the little sailboats on his rompers and his bright red shoes -- but, he is SO not liking the hat! Toby is 18" head to toe and is made from muslin and fiberfill; then painted. He is jointed at the shoulders, hips and neck. He wears a Huggies diaper, shirt, romper, hat, shoes and socks. These are my original patterns; except for shirt and hat which are altered Pleasant Company patterns. Purchased wig, diaper, stuffed animal, alphabet blocks and antique child's chair.

Special Mention by Voters.  Why...

Exceptionally neat work and the painted face is wonderful
.

Very Sweet

If I read this right, Toby is made from this maker's own pattern - and he is quite the "lady killer!"

Very good presentation.

Little Angel


Little Angel is 24" tall and wears a removable bunting. His body is made from an original pattern of mine and is 100% cotton stuffed to medium firmness with quality fiberfill. He has hands and feet, and his face is a digital photograph printed onto fabric. The bunting is also an original pattern and is made of soft fleece, has a front zipper and elastic at the wrists and ankles. The hood is not connected to the bunting itself, but is permanently attached around the face and head. He is quite striking to see in person as he is so realistic. His face is moisture-proof (for kissability), and his body is perfect for hugging!
.

Special Mention by Voters.  Why...

I love how she got his face perfect.

His face is perfect. I would love for her to do a face baby for me! I would like to buy one of my own child's face.

Remarkable likeness to a real baby! Nice job on the photo print on fabric. Excellent job creating the outfit.

I think this doll deserves special mention because it is the most different of all the dolls that were entered. I did a double take when I saw it.

Ingenuity, awesome reality, but really does need a different category

Because of the amazing way the face was done to make it so realistic.

I think the picture transfer for the doll's face is striking.

Bunny

This is my Dear One, Bunny with her own rabbit. Bunny´s face is very beautiful with her long eyelashes and blonde wig, her body makes her huggable and the back is really nice too. I chose Kezi Matthews pattern for doll and clothing. I made her shoes of blue felt I bought soquets for her and as she was created as Bunny I gave her the white rabbit that Judi Ward created for her Alice, I think it is a nice gift for Bunny.

Special Mention by Voters.  Why...

Lovely doll, looks huggable and very friendly for a girl.

Baby Becky

Today was Baby Becky’s birthday. She is two years old. She got some lovely gifts from her grandparents. Grandma Joan sent a special little carved dolly for Becky. Her cousins sent dolls also. Dolls are her favorite toys. She also received a teddy bear and a top. After breakfast she played in her playpen with her new toys and in the late afternoon she got dressed for her birthday photo. (Sometimes she likes to play in just her diaper!)

Becky is made from felt and has a molded felt face with hand painted features.(my own design)

I made the playpen with cushion, Becky, and her outfit, and all the dollies, most of which are carved from wood. (One of the dollies is cloth, the one dressed in white.) I also made most of the outfits for the dollies. The toy top was purchased. The teddy bear was purchased, but I made his outfit.


Special Mention by Voters.  Why...

She is so cute!

Molding a felted face for a doll seems a great challenge.

Helen

Helen is a Soft Sculpture, 16" high seated. Her body was designed by me from my own sketches, beginning with a wire armature and sculpted in layers of batting and felt. Her face is painted in acrylics, inspired by a photograph. Her hair is a blend of human and acrylic, attached with silicone a few strands at a time.

Her dress is vintage, as are the toy blocks.

Helen was a new venture for me, as I have never used felt for an entire piece before and found it challenging but fun!



Special Mention by Voters.  Why...

This doll has great detail, a wonderful pose,and is totally captivating!

She is made completely from felt and her face was designed by the artist from a photograph! Amazing talent!

This doll has such an exquisite look about her, almost as if she was real, very similar to the antique dolls from a hundred years ago made by some of the most famous doll makers in the world.

Helen for her advanced armature skills and sculptural beauty.

Technique...Wow! Super detail in tiny fingers and awesome job with hair and paint.
