Recent Projects: Little Dolls and a Mug Sweater

The two little dolls I made for my youngest daughters. They wanted ballerinas (of course). The first is wired and so poseable, but the second is just wool-stuffed. I made her a little more toddler-friendly.

The mug sweater was an experiment this afternoon. I genuinely laughed when I buttoned it in the mug! It’s all wool and wooden buttons. Smokey interrupted the photo shoot to peer in to see if I had brought him anything. I think some mug sweaters may find their way into the shop. I made up the pattern as I went so there’s some tweaking to do yet. (Note: at sunset the heat index is still 100, so the fall illusion is just that: an illusion. I found some leaves that had fainted in the heat for the photos.)
