Meet Margeurite

I made this doll as a custom order -- she has safely arrived at her new home so I feel safe posting her here now. She told her owner that her name is Marguerite.



I think this is the first doll I have ever made that I am completely satisfied with how she turned out.



I think if I had been going to keep her I would have added more beads, but she was already way more work than I had anticipated and she wanted to go home.



If you are interested, the instructions for her hair vine can be found here.

hi Judi....it's me ....Ms. Forgetful...

I put out a distress call on my blog earlier today....after searching all over for this little gal.... (obviously I missed your blog somehow even though it is on my list).... because I couldn't remember who it was that had made my favourite hairdo on a doll!

You gave me a site to find some of this beautiful hair.... and...I am ashamed to say...I can't find it. I know darn well I filed it somewhere safe...but, it is so safe I can't remember where I put it...

can you let me know once again please? .... it was thanks to Serena and Judi W. that I tracked her down... lol.... they remembered much better than I did where they saw this beauty.....

Cheryl said...

Hey Judi, I would like to know where you got the hair too. Thanks
