Aaron Starr

Little Aaron has been out on an Easter egg hunt with his dog, Bazil. But those aren't eggs he's bringing home.

Aaron is my sixth doll, so I'm still a beginner doll maker. I combined techniques from Judi Ward patterns with needle sculpting techniques learnt from Kazi Mathews' patterns. Aaron has needle-felted hair, a sculpted and painted face, belly button, bottom, knees and elbows. His dog was purchased while his shirt, socks and shoes are made from old baby clothes. His shorts are made out of fabric from my favourite pair of worn out jeans and are my own pattern.

Entry #B2

1st Place

Kezi's Baby Anne
Doll by Tove Edens
from... Ontario, Canada

Spring means Easter and the rebirth of life with all the soft colours of new
beginnings.

Baby Anne is a spring baby, made from doe suede, stuffed with sheep's roving and weighted with doll beads. Anne's features are painted using a fine-tip marker, the eye's highlights is a toothpick's touch of white-out.
The soft sculpting is self-taught following Kezi's instructions and the
crowning touch is a wig sewn on and styled to suit Anne. Anne's dress is my own version of a baby's spring dress, a soft mint eyelet with a slip of white.

Jo-Jo is his sister and she is sleeping with her tongue sticking out because she is a little trouble maker and is even mischievous in her sleep.

Kelly

This is from a Judi Ward pattern and her clothes are store-bought.

This is baby, Kelly's first Easter, so she is holding a little Easter bunny. The dress and bunny belonged to my granddaughter for her first Easter. This is my first attempt at face painting on a baby doll.

Thank you for considering my attempt at this challenge..

Independence

Independence, was born on the 4th of July, so we decided to celebrate this great holiday. Independence was made out of craft velour from a Judi Ward's 6-9 month size baby which includes a swivel head and button jointed arms and legs. She sits very well and looks so real when she is laying down. I used gel pens to get her expression on her face. Independence's outfit was made from an infant Simplicity pattern consisting of dress, pinafore and boomers. She loves celebrating this great holiday by waving the American flag and playing with her patriotic teddy bear, Liberty.

Belle

Since the ancient days in England there prevailed a custom of "bringing in the May" on May Day. English villagers woke at daybreak to roam the countryside gathering blossoming flowers and branches. Revellers, dressed in white with red or blue sashes, danced through the streets. Part of the celebration was the crowning of a May Queen. The Queen was chosen from the pretty girls of the village to reign over the festivities. Children celebrated by moving back and forth around the maypole with streamers. Belle is a Waldorf doll. Pattern is from the "Doing without" blog by Amberskyfire.

Willow
Doll by Debbie Archibald
from... South Burlington, VT

Willow is a 9 month old Navajo Native American baby boy . He and his family celebrate the Harvest in the month of September. Native Americans celebrate the gifts from Mother Earth daily, however during the fall season they give thanks for the past season and celebrate the coming harvest.

Willow was made of hand dyed muslin. A fur wig that I made from craft
fur. His clothing is white flanal trimmed in Native America style
ribbon. Willows clothing was designed by me. His mocasins which are
made of fleece were made using Judi Wards shoe pattern for the Dionne

Belinda, Mommy's Little Rose Bud

Hi, I'm so excited to be doing this! For Mother's Day, please consider "Belinda, Mommy's Little Rose Bud" for beginner level. I love the Bumbershoots pattern, by Nita Keeler and knew I needed to make a soft and sweet remake for the contest.

Emily

Emily was designed from Judy Ward's Preemie pattern and is a 30 week preemie. She has a weighted head and body, loose joints, and weak neck giving her the flexibility and feel of a real baby. Emily was created as a model for preemie clothes and her face was drawn on in colored pencil.

Emily weighs in at just less than 3 lbs. She is shown here modeling her new Easter outfits. Her favorite is the yellow one with the puppy.

Emily's outfits are hand-made but the pink blanket and pink mittens are store-bought.

Baby Becky Doll

I found a fabric panel doll kit at the thrift store and decided to try it. It's called Baby Becky.

I altered the basic doll by redoing the head because it had printed on face features and hair. I prefer to embroider the facial features and make yarn hair. For the clothing, I decided on a Halloween theme. The dress is made from recycling one of my t-shirts. The knickers are made from the novelty boxer shorts my hubby never wore. The boots are from a soft, dark green leather that started out as a pair of ladies leather pants. Becky stands 16 3/4 inches tall.

This baby's name is Jordan. She is my four year old daughter's first attempt at doll making. She is a no sew doll made from socks and rubber bands. I learned this pattern as a child. I made the outfits for her. Jordan is shown here in her holiday outfits. The witch outfit is made from mismatched black socks. The Christmas outfit is from a red Christmas sock and a white sock. The New Years party dress is from a gold Christmas sock. The tiny sock baby I made from a baby sock. The faces are drawn on in marker.

Kaylee

Kaylee is 10 months old. She has just come from Easter dinner at her
grandmother's house. She is made from muslin. She was stuffed with
fiber fill and then hand painted using acrylic pain. She was coated
with a matte sealant. Kaylee, her clothes, hat and shoes were all
designed using Judi Ward's "Dionne" doll pattern and clothes patterns.
She is my first baby doll to date. Juid's pattern was very inspirational.

I made my doll using Judi Ward's doll pattern
"Dionne" as a template to work off.
