I'm currently working on a commissioned "mini-me" doll named Belinda. I've never met the real Belinda and am working from photos. Along with the photos, I received a fabulous written description so that I could try and create a close likeness. I'll be posting photos of my work in progress.
I started with basic white fleece, created the head and have added the features... Belinda "has a bit of a crooked smile" which I accentuated to help capture her personality.
She now has a partial body..
Almost finished - Belinda has to sit and let the wool relax and then I will primp and apply the finishing touches....
