Yesterday I went grocery shopping with my 5 kids. It was 108 degrees here in Arizona, and we were gone for three hours. When I got home, I was exhausted from the heat and the challenges of loading and unloading 2 kids from car seats and groceries from two stores. So what's a girl to do when she's too exhausted to do housework? Make a doll of course!
I introduce to you Dobby the House Elf.
He stands 9 1/2 inches tall (24 cm)
This doll was a challenge to construct because of his body shape. I used techniques that I've not used before, and I'm becoming more confident in my pattern making abilities. I also think that I'm getting better at the face painting. I still need some work on my photography skills. Oh, well. It will come with practice.
Dobby is available for sale in my shop.
Now that I've finished him, I guess I better get to that laundry. Yuck!
