That’s how I feel after the
fit of madness inspiration that hit me last week. I suddenly had to make a doll. With a summer wardrobe! And it had to be NOW!!! dammit now!!!!
And I did.
Here is Crystal, so named because of her (crystal-) clear eyes.
I have concocted a rather elaborate back story for Crystal, but I doubt I’ll ever be brave enough to post it on the web. Let’s just say it involves mad scientists and evil assistants.
But for now Crystal is living a Barbie Doll-esque lifestyle. Changing outfits and looking pretty, despite having too much hair.
I made the following articles of clothing for her:
A. A bikini – from pattern
B. A pair of shorts – from pattern
C. A top / A skirt (it can be worn both ways)
E. A graphic tee
F. A bag
G. A shrug
H. A dress
I. Sandals – from pattern
Unless a clothing item says “from pattern” I designed it. It was a lot of crochet, a lot of design and an all encompassing need to own this particular item. I’m very relieved that I’m finished and I’m sure I will be much more enthusiastic about her in the future, right now though? I need a break.
