yessssssssssss, finally a completed doll!!!!

sewing her dress was my biggest fear! thus, Shelle (the doll) sat there. on a corner shelf, dressless (that's not a word, huh) ... so it took me almost a month to give her an outfit. I just didn't know how to. I originally had in mind a green dress, she was also suppose to have red hair. Somehow along the way everything changed and this is how she turned out. I named her after my daughter Michelle, hence the green dress and red hair idea... but like I said, that didn't work out.

I started making this doll because my husband had written a song for her many years ago, when she was much younger, it was called Michelle and her red balloon (he is a musician). So there my idea was born. anyway, I guess I deviated from the main subject.... the dress... so she was there in mere panties and tank, so sad... (hey, at least I gave her panties)  I just could not get myself to making her a dress, some pants anything! I just hate sewing! Not only that, I think I am not too great at it. when it comes to that, I draw a blank. so, today I made up my mind. I went for it. not having an idea of what I was going to do, I just pulled out stuff from the drawers and got to it. and so here she is, dress and all... I wonder what she is concerned about now!!!??? she has this look on her face... LOL!

work in progress, shelle with a red balloon

still in progress! it has been a while since I had time to work on my dolls, even to blog. shelle is still in progress and I have no clue on how I'm going to dress her. sewing is my struggling point and I hate it! here she is, much happier to finally have hair and a red balloon!


This is how she started:
