So..what do you think?



For those of you I have asked to stop by and have a look..thanks for doing so.. I appreciate your time and your thoughts. For those of you who have tripped on this post please also feel free to toss me your thoughts but please be kind ;-)
Gawd!.. I am nervous showing off some of my new work!.. but here it is. These are my new in-the-hoop embroidery designs ( if that means nothing to you don't worry.. ) Over all I am interested in what you think of how they look. As you can see it's a mama doll with an apron pocket sized just right for baby. I realize now that from these photos you you can't tell the scale of these dolls.. the mama doll is 7 inches tall and baby is 3.5.. just right for a little person to take to church or anyplace where they need to have a quite toy to play with. I know that I am going to sell the embroidery files for people with home embroidery machines but I have already had some interest in people buying the dolls already made up.. decisions.. decisions.
So what do you fine people think. The dolls are made of up-cycled fabric and stuffed with 100% wool roving. The doll featured has an apron made of vintage lace but some dolls with have coordinating fabric instead of lace. I am working on a more "boy" version of the doll combo and one with " twin" babies to mix it up a bit. Of course I will be mixing up hair and eye color along with fabric so no two dolls will look the same but mama baby will coordinate in some way each time. Thoughts about price?.. are they worth doing?.. should I pursue a table ( for next year) at our local Sunday market.. just stick with embroidery files?...
Thanks for your time and your feed back.. it means a lot to me! Love, Maddie

I like them. I think you should sell ready made ones too.

So sweet and boy versions are just what Hunter needs. My mother always made sure that all the boys had dolls so they could learn to be a parent along with the girls. That's the Grandma Jo wisdom for the day.

Oh, those are downright precious!!! Beautiful job.

Cute! I think you should sell both. Get the Emb files out there first because when they're done they're done. Then evaluate the time spent on sewing the actual dolls.
Where did you find wool roving?? I'm looking for large quantities

Oops... I didn't mean wool ROVING I meant wool filling. Roving I have plenty of!
