This doll was part of a craft swap and soon she will go to her new home. What I’m getting is just AMAZING!!! I cannot wait for him to come home.
While I was waiting for some materials to arrive to continue with the commissions I have, I managed to finish this chibi Harley. I’m two days late from the date we set to complete the swap but I think two days are not so bad.
Although, Harley’s design seems not to be “that” complicated to make . . . IT WAS FOR MY POOR BRAIN! I’m not sure if I’m the only weird person or not but I always make the entire process inside my head; I draft/draw the pattern, cut it and put the pieces together. I don’t start working on the doll until I’m sure everything will fit in place [more or less]. But for this doll my brain always got the colors on the wrong side, so this time I had to put everything on paper to have a better visual of how the colors should go on the actual doll. LOL
So what did I learn this time? This time I learned how to make those “Elizabethan Ruffles.”
Since I was getting a super cool Amigurumi from my swap partner, I had to give something of the same size, so, I resized the pattern for the super chibi dolls and I ended up with a 13 ½ doll which I think it is a nice size.
The doll is made of deer suede and the overlay for the clothes is jersey. The details are hand painted and the cuffs are kinda removable. I know that I make the pigtails thingies longer than the original design but that is because she requested that.
