I'm a third time around doll fan.
First when I was a kid, secondly when I played for hours with my daughter, and just recently I thought why wait for the grandchildren?
I've been inspired by blogs, photos and enthusiasts online...I don't know where I'm going with this but I am having fun.
I don't have room at home for a collection, so my idea at the moment is to give played with dolls a makeover, and then send them off to a new life.
At the moment I'm making clothes with recycled material, or cleaning and mending pre-worn doll fashions. (I made the jumper in the photo from some of my old knitwear)
Landmarks this week..my first doll haircut and I was able to let go enough to list the first of my makeover dolls on ebay. (she just needed her hair sorting and new shoes so I reckoned it felt less of a risk if nobody wanted her)
