The moment we've all been waiting for! The debut of my Angry Face Dolls! Here is the first of what I hope will be a line of lovable dolls. I may nix the Angry Face in later dolls. Dolls are supposed to be happy!
How did Angry Face Dolls come to be? I'd been bouncing a few ideas around, when someone said "Why don't you make a doll with an angry face? It would look like you." Yes, even though my profile picture is a smiling face, most of the time I really do look angry. (Another long story for another time.) So I set to creating a doll.
You've seen a few progress steps of her hair, shot with my less than quality camera phone. From her meager beginning as a turnip head, I knew how she was going to look. I never did get around to sketching out my idea of how she was going to look. I just started crocheting. I must admit, I'd never have gotten the hair just right without Owlishly's amigurumi hair tutorial. Here is another shot of her hair, just after I gave her bangs a trim:
Her name is Molly Lynn, and she looks angry.
She stands about 1' tall, has bright pink hair and a red dress, with red hair ribbons that have white polka dots.
Her Mary Jane-like shoes can be taken off her feet. Her socks have a bit of sparkly lace edging.
She likes to take walks through the garden to see the marigolds.
I hope you enjoyed meeting Molly Lynn!
Til next time,
Be Fearless. Be Crafty. Be You!
