It's A Fashion Extravaganza

Hi, my fashionistas out there,

Someone asked me a while back if I could draw... I was like "not to save my life"... Well, I'm no artist (not with a pen or pencil, paintbrush, you get the gist).  He replied, then how can you create those πŸ‘‰ referring to my dolls.

I told him, I just envision the look I want and just do it.  It sometimes takes me weeks to perfect a look while others a few minutes.

The easiest part of making my dolls is the blank canvas, the framework, the body. Everything else requires me to be comfortable, focus and void of distraction.

I decided to make a few dolls back in June yes June.  Within a few days, I finish 6 bodies, within 2 weeks a dozen bodies were completed... Then comes the hard part... What look should I give them?πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

Think, think, think, think........ Okay, check yarn stash, check available colours.... Days pass, weeks pass, then before I know it, it's August... Oh man, what are you doing Melissa? At this pace, you'll definitely not get anywhere. πŸ™„  Or so you think....

I finally got my inspiration when I got a package with some embroidery thread.... These pretty bright colours were all I need.

Aren't they just so pretty?

One week or so and my fashion show was ready to begin.....
