Heirloom Quality Miniature a new and improved design!

Hello friends, I have been working on a new design for some of my 1:12 scale miniatures, which makes them a much better quality doll in the end. It is much more work, and tedious at times, but the outcome shows much improvement! I hope you think the same!

 First I created a little smaller head, only the size of a US dime, and painted in the eyes, instead of inset eyes I usually create. I sculpted a small breast plate with holes to attach to a soft body. Then I created half limbs with holes, and grooves, so that a wire could be inserted within each limb, and the clothing could be nicely fitted into the groove. I took extra care to ensure a standard small size Heidi Ott shoe would fit! (those little Mary Janes are so darling!) I created a small soft, fiber fill body, with a few weight pellets in the bottom, and inserted 100% cotton pipe cleaners through the body for the arms, and legs.

I cut the wires to the proper length , and attached the limbs, and sewed the head/breast plate to the torso of the soft body. I then did a little soft sculpting to give her a sweet shape. Now her body was all together, and I began designing her hair and clothing. I made little pantaloons, and after sliding them on her, I loosely filled in the area around the leg wires with fiber fill, same with her little blouse and arms.  I am including some WIP photos, so that you can see the progress. I forgot to take pictures of her soft body and wires, so I made a drawing to help show you.


I hope you enjoy seeing how she was made, and seeing her in completion! She is quite nice to pose, and hopefully someone will be proud to add her to their collection soon! She is listed on my eBay now! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post, and for your visits! xoxox Christel

No worries, I married a truck driver, come rain shine, or snow, he'll get us there! xoxoxo Christel
