The making of Jade

I’ve got some catching upto do after my busy fair last week and as I am always being asked about how the dolls are made, I thought I would take a few pictures of the making of Jade.  To fit this in with my schedule I have been getting up at 5.30am several days this week and have been working later in the evening, but I do enjoy making the doll, it is a labour of love. 

As you can see she is a little girl of about 7 years and also is fast asleep.  Here she is in pieces, waiting to be assembled - she does have a lovely face.

 Firstly, I strung the head and then the limbs were put in place. 

Her friends are here to play – “wake up sleepy head”. 

"Jade wake up, you are going to drop your doll"

She looks so cosy in her red cardigan with her matching red leather shoes, I pleated the floral cotton fabric for her skirt included a waistband to keep it tidy, Jade’s blouse is cream silk, you can just see the tiny pearl effect buttons running up the front.  

Her friend still cant wake her.
