So Maisie's journey from idea to reality is at an end.
She is all ready to find a home of her own.
Maisie is the fourth doll made from my Mabel My Dear pattern
and I am enjoying the dinky dumpling shape of these little ones.
I am finding the 17" size and slightly more sturdy proportions of a younger child that these dolls have are lots of fun to dress and pose.
With Maisie though I have very much gone back to basics and the simplicity of soft fuzzy mohair yarn hair.
This is the traditional material used for Waldorf dolls and gives a charmed fuzzy bed hair look that is so right for a doll representing the preschool aged child.
Maisie will be available here on the blog in the next couple of days.
There are more pictures over here
Be warned she is a bit of rascal and that sweet face and pretty dress
are part of a little miss who will keep you on your toes.
But that's part of the fun isn't it.
