All Dolls Below...

3rd Place

Entry #A-1

Rafaella Simone
Doll by Barbara Johnson
from... Greensboro, NC


The name of my doll is Rafaella Simone. She is an original pattern designed by me for this challenge.

She is 24" from head to toe. Her arms are jointed but her legs fixed to sit. She is around 10 months old and I've posed her with her favorite stuffed animal, a little Pug that she is holding close to her because she is not happy at the moment.

Her little outfit was purchased but then reworked and embellished by me to fit my concept of what I wanted her to wear. She does not want shoes or socks right now."

Entry #A-2

Steampunk Sam
Doll by Christine Chumley
from... Katy, Tx

This is Steampunk Sam. He was made from the pattern Steampunk Baby by Frowning Francis. I didn't gesso and paint him, I just used a flesh toned fabric. I also button jointed the limbs instead of sewing them on. Other than that, everything is by the pattern's instruction. Except the propeller which is made from stiff paper and painted.

Sam dreams of flying. You are witnessing his first attempt to fulfill his dream. I think he can do it... do you?

4th Place

Entry #A-3

Doll by Marijke Smekens
from... The Netherlands

Klaartje,
the little humblebee girl

This is Klaartje. My little humblebee girl!

She is a soft cloth doll and is 44 cm (17 inch) tall.

Her skin is made of craftvelour, her blonde hair from faux fur. Eyes and mouth are embroidered. Her hands, toes, elbows and knees are soft sculptured.

Her body is inspired by the pattern "Bare Baby" by Judi Ward. I changed most of the pattern, but I learned so much of it !

The head is my own design, and so are also the clothes; dress and trousers.

The bumblebees on the dress and on her hairclip are crocheted by me. Also are the shoes.

1st Place

Entry #A-4

Lucy's Scary Toy
Doll by Susan McMahon
from... Australia


Baby Lucy has just been given a new toy - when she wound the handle on the side of the box, she liked the tinkly music it played. But then the lid flew open and out popped Jack..........this gave Lucy a big fright and she didn't know whether to laugh or cry! Her lip is quivering and she's really glad her Mama is nearby.

Lucy is a 14" jointed cloth baby designed by me. She has a moulded cloth head painted with artist's acrylics (including her hair) and her body is jointed at the hips, shoulders and neck. She has needle-sculpted toes and wired fingers. All her clothes were sewn, knitted and crocheted by me to fit her. I also made the jack-in-the-box from various bits and pieces. His head is air-dry clay and he is on a spring so he wobbles about. His wooden box is 2" square.

Entry #A-5

Doortje,
who loves roses..

Doll by Marijke Smekens
from... The Netherlands

Meet my Doortje!

She is a soft cloth doll and is 48 cm (18,9 inch) tall.

Her skin is made of craftvelour, her black hair from faux fur. Eyes and mouth are embroidered. Her hands, toes, elbows and knees are soft sculptured.

Her body is inspired by the pattern "Bare Baby" by Judi Ward. I changed most of the pattern, but I learned so much of it !

The head is my own design, and so are also the clothes; dress and trousers.

All roses; in her hair and on her dress are crocheted by me. The shoes and the edges on the dress I also crocheted.


2nd Place

Entry #A-6

Baby Devyn

Doll by Jennifer Williams
from... Talking Rock, GA


She is made with all natural materials, wool stuffing and a blond mohair wig. Like all babies, she likes to dress in her comfy play clothes, so that she is not restricted in any way from all of her daily exploring.

She just learned to crawl and refuses to wear anything but her diaper most of the time. I tried to put a cute themed costume on her but she just wouldn't have any of it! I managed to get her into this t-shirt and booties for the photo's, so her theme is just "baby casual".

Entry #A-7

Kimmie

Doll by Lizzie Gibson
from... Theodore, Al

I'd like to introduce you to Kimmie.....

Kimmie is a cute little baby that is around 6 months old. She loves posing for the camera especially when she's just out of the tub and nice and clean.

Kimmie is about 16". She is my own design and made from soft craft velour. She is lightly weighted for a natural feel and her hair is a hair piece made with craft fur. Her diaper is my own design as well, made with real baby wash cloths sewn together with felt as batting and ribbon for closures. Her arms and legs are string jointed and her neck has a plastic joint. I have needle sculpted all of Kimmie's facial features and ears along with all of her creases, including her fingers, toes and cute little toushie. Her eyes are painted and I have powdered both sets of cheeks plus all of her creases. The final touch of Kimmie is I mist her lightly with baby power scent and style her hair.....

Entry #A-8

Country Kid and
Sleeping Sister On Grandma's Settee

Doll by Joyce Weaver
from... Burnet, Texas

These dolls were made from 3 Vogue patterns that I've had for awhile. Dolls' hair is varegated eyelash yarn that I sewed on by hand, dolls are made from hand dyed cotton fabric, feet, hands and face are needle sculpted so they have fingers, dimples, and toes. Country Kid's clothes consist of a red check apron over a bright "country kid" cotton print playsuit. Sleeping Sister's gown and night cap are white on white cotton print, trimmed with vintage lace and green heart shaped buttons. I made the carrier, too, using vintage laces, cotton fabric, boning, Timtex, buttons, satin ribbon and handmade rosettes. There's a matching pillow and comforter inside the carrier. These dolls are about 15" tall and super cuddly. I want to have both dolls as one entry since they are twin sisters!

Entry #A-9

"MY"

Doll by Lena Thiel
from... Sweden

It's a doll of my own design, about 45 cm high. The joints are done with wooden balls.

The small bear is also my own design. All clothes are knitted bye me, after a pattern from Malfrid Gausel.

I made this doll first as a test of making a soft "ball jointed doll". I have been inspired from "real" BJD dolls I seen on the internet.


Entry #A-10

Sadie

Doll by Lizzie Gibson
from... Theodore, Al

Sadie is 5 months old. She is waiting for Mommy to pick her up so they can go to the park. Mommy makes sure she takes along Sadie's bottle and paci for when she gets sleepy and needs a nap.

Four different patterns are combined and heavily altered to make cute little Sadie. She is about 12 inches tall, and made using craft velour. Her hair is craft fur made into a wig and her big blue eyes are painted. Her clothing is store bought newborn size, then altered to fit her small size. Her paci and bottle both are altered with magnets, making them both easy for her "suck". Her socks are also bought and altered to fit.

Entry #A-11

Justina

Doll by Louise Allison
from... Rutledge, TN

Justina is my version of the porcelain doll "Sugar Britches" done in cloth with eyes open. She is a doll of color made in polyester knit, with a hand drawn face. She is dressed in a Christening outfit, made of cotton batiste, lace and ribbon. She wears a store bought diaper but the diaper cover, slip and dress bonnet and shoes are all hand made.

Entry #A-12

SARAH JANE

Doll by Peggy Nyberg
from... Corvallis, Oregon

This babies name is SARAH JANE. She is 20" long, her hair is a wig cap I made from tibetan lambskin. Her head and face are sculpted with polyfil, wool and thread. Her body and arms are an altered pattern from "dinky babies".

Her onesie is a newborn size made by Gerber. Her sox were purchased at Kmart and remade to fit her short little toes. She has dimples on her elbows and knees. Has sculpted fingers and toes and a belly button.

Entry #A-13

Sugar Baby

Doll by Louise Allison
from... Rutledge, TN

Sugar Baby is made from a hand drawn pattern that was given to me over 30 years ago. I have no idea who designed it. She is hand made in polyester knit with a hand drawn face. Her outfit is made of cotton flannel and she is wearing a store bought diaper. Her blanket is polyester blend.

Entry #A-14

Weighted Birth Demonstration Baby
(based on actual child measurments)

Doll by Catherine Whyte
from... United Kingdom

An original designed doll pattern made based on my eldest daughters weight and measurements. It's weighted (just over 3lbs) at it's core with bags of sand which are then wrapped in sheeps wool before being sewn into the cloth body parts. The placenta (also weighted) is detchable and fastened with velcro, though I might use a press stud if making another.

Why a birth demonstration doll? I have a friend who is a doula, we both agreed that most commercially available birth demonstration dolls just don't have a pick me up vibe and wouldn't it be great to have dolls that expectant women actually feel like mothering, just a little.

Entry #A-15

Billy, Future Baseball Star!

Doll by Kezia Catherine Huckaby
from... Fremont, CA

Billy is made from an original design of CAROLE CREATIONS pattern called SWEET CHEEKS. The doll is 17 inches, the size of a premie baby. He is stuffed with Polyester stuffing and has sculptured fingers and toes. His clothes are home made using my own designed patterns; diaper, shirt, and hat. The small baseball, bat, and mitt were bought at a doll show several years ago and were the inspiration for the baseball theme. This doll makes me smile. I hope he makes you smile, too.

This is Billy. He's Daddy's Boy! Daddy is looking forward to the time Billy is big enough to play catch with him and eventually, learn to hit the ball and play the game. Daddy is proud of Billy and loves him very much.

Entry #A-16

Puddin'
my painted cloth baby.

Doll by Susan McMahon
from... AUSTRALIA

Puddin' is an original-design cloth doll with jointed limbs and a painted trompe l'oeil face (Flat surface painted to look 3D). Doll is 18" long and painted with acrylics. Her fingers have been wired, so that she can hold onto things. She has painted hair and wears a premmie-sized all-in-one purchased baby suit. She has a crochet wool bonnet and her jacket and shoes made from fleecy fabric. The bonnet, jacket and shoes were designed and made by me.


Entry #A-17

Steampunk Sandy

Doll by Christine Chumley
from... Katy, Tx

She was made with Steampunk Baby by Frowning Francis. I changed the hair and clothes. I used no gesso.I made her with flesh colored fabric and bottoned jointed limbs. Her dragonfly is Dragonfly & Butterfly by Laura Lunsford.

Just like her brother, Sam, Sandy is interested in flying. She would prefer to fly on the back of a dragonfly. She hopes to someday build a dragonfly shaped contraption that can carry her through the sky. She has a great start with her remote controlled friend here.
