All Dolls Below...

Entry #B-1

Lily and Rosie: Springtime Twins
Doll by Courtney McConnell
from... Stockton, Ca

These girls were made especially for two brown eyed, brown haired little girls with birthdays close together. The dolls are meant to represent them and dressed in pastel colors for spring. These girls were made with soft and safe materials and meant to be played with!

These twins are made from soft craft velour using the baby bows pattern by Judi Ward. The hair is made from super bulky wool blend yarn. Their eyes are wool felt and matching embroidery floss. The dress pattern is from the blue berry moon's Nakey Baby Series. The dresses are cotton fabric lined with flannel and the diapers are made from soft polar fleece. The dresses and diapers have Velcro closures for easy dressing and undressing for little hands.

Entry #B-2

Chloe
Doll by Heather Brown
from... Oxford, MI

Chloe is an 18" cloth doll, made from a pattern by Cutest Creations. She is my first attempt at this pattern, and my most complicated doll yet. It is difficult finding the right fabric with the perfect amount of stretch, so Chloe was made from a t-shirt that I found while searching for fabric. Her arms and legs are button-jointed, and her hair is made from faux-fur fabric that can be brushed. Her diaper is made from scrap flannel-the colors seemed just right! Chloe's diaper can be worn with either the velcro tabs, or diaper pins.

My grandmother always made porcelain dolls. As a child, I loved sewing sock dolls, and loved to imagine the dolls I made were in an orphanage, and "adopted" them to my sister and friends. I always planned to work on my dollmaking skills, but over time with children, school, and sports, dollmaking fell by the wayside. Recently, to my daughter's delight, I have picked up where I left off! I especially enjoy "baby" dolls, and hope to be able to sculpture more realistic details and become more consistent in my results!

2nd Place

Entry #B-3

Doll by Jade Hemsley
from... Queensland, Australia

Julie Anne

I'd like to introduce you to Julie Anne (I named her Julie Anne after my mother).

She is made from a pattern by Linda Carr. Her bloomers and bonnet are also by Linda Carr. I slightly changed her face to look more like a baby. I designed her shoes and shirt. She is made from calico. Her outfit is made from cotton fabric. Her shoes are made from felt.

It's Julie Anne's first birthday and she has just started walking and her mummy is so proud of her. She has just been dressed up in her birthday clothes and her party is about to start.

I had a lot of fun making her.


3rd Place

Entry #B-4

Doll by Joy Boath
from... Australia

Declan - the tiniest sailor

Declan is a 22w preemie, made from Sandy Eding's preemie pattern. He has a hand-painted face and is weighted with beads. Although it wasn't called for in the pattern, I decided to add hair made from merino wool roving, stitched into his scalp, which really made him come to life. Declan's arms and legs are jointed, but he is designed to be floppy so that he feels like a real preemie baby when held. He almost fits in the palm of my hand. His small size made him quite a challenge for my first doll making experience!

Declan was made to help me design angel diapers and hospital smocks for charity, so he is dressed in hand-made diaper, smock, and hand-knitted hat, for a memorable last cuddle. Most babies born this early have no clothes that fit properly, while their parents hold them and say goodbye, so Declan is helping me to change that.

Bear and rug are purchased.

Entry #B-5

Suzie
Doll by Judith J. Acosta
from... Columbia, CA

Made from a Kezi pattern. I painted the eyes, the hair is a wig, the arms and legs were attached with large buttons on the outside of the appendage, I stuffed her with premium Polyester Fiberfil, the material for the body is Polyester doubleknit and the cloths are made out of a Polyester.

This is Suzie. Why I don't know the name just came to me and I have been calling her Suzie ever since I've made her. I love dolls and have always made porcelain bodies so I thought I'd try and make me a cloth doll. She loves to play with Captain's (my small curly haired dog) teddy bear which Captain then loves to take and play with too—they have a lot of fun playing together but I have to keep a cloose eye on Captain to play easy. Suzie is only the second cloth baby doll of mine and I love her. The first is a boy doll name Tony and he is cute also and of course I love him too.

4th Place

Entry #B-6

Genisis
She represents a new beginning

Doll by Myrtis Julaine Karim
from... Chicago, IL

Genisis is 6 months old her clothing is purchased size 3-6 months.Genisis also is a mostly green baby ,recycled that is her clothing came from the second-hand store as did her skin. Her hair is recycled from my son's senior rock-n-roll day. She is made using Runo's Baby Girl doll pattern. I altered a few things.

In the midst of depression ,while reading group emails i posted a response and some one suggested a spool bird swap. I entered,and regained some of my confidence. I haven't sewn since i was eight and had an ugly accident with a pair of Singer scissors. Hence the name of my doll .


Entry #B-7

Joe Bob

Doll by Kathy Copeland
from... Paragould, Arkansas

My handsome little fisherman, Joe Bob, was born from different pictures I found from surfing the internet. The basic idea for my little Joe Bob came from a pattern by Darlene Rausch. I emprovised the pattern to make Joe Bob into what he is today. His body, head, arms and legs was sewn from soft knit and he stands about 18" tall. He has a sculpted face, ears, arms, hands, legs and toes. I used gel pens and chalks to bring his face to life. His shirt is made from a red gingham cotton and his overalls was sewn from a pair of old jeans. He is wearing little brown loafers made from moleskin.

Joe bob loves sitting on the side of his fishing hole with his little pal Spot to watch the fish play in the water. His fishing pole was made from a dowel with wire for the line and a real lure that caught his little fish. Joe Bob's fishing hat is just how he likes it with the ragged edges and holes with all of his extra lures for good luck.


Entry #B-8

1st Place

Little Emily

Doll by Watinee Dhirapava
from... Thailand

 

This is Little Emily. She is a very shy girl who loves to play with the doll and her naughty kittens.

Emily is 18 inches tall, and is made of cotton jersey fabric. I used a very simple pattern drawn by me.

A fur wig that I made from craft fur. She has wire armatures I made for her hands so she can grip items. I crocheted her dress and sock myself. The stuffed animals and her little doll were made by me also. Booties and jacket were purchased.
