They've taken all my time but now they're dressed and have had their photoshoot and are ready to meet new people.
The process was meticulous and structured: design
(they are my design number 3); cut out bodies, arms, legs; tattoo arms; sew and stuff; finish off by hand. Embroider faces; sew, stuff and attach hair; sew on lace knickers - (I did the arms after this, I remember). Clothes: choose fabrics and wool that work together; knit or crochet wraps. Make dresses; design and sew collars. Add fun bits (buttons, lace, knit and crochet more collars or ruffs). Bags. Items to go in bags. Here are two in front of Middlemarch. They look relaxed and ready for adventure. Me, I'm ready for Ian M Banks sci-fi and bed.
