I am sorry to announce that I will not be able to make any more dolls for this Christmas season. We are in the process of finishing or basement and all of my supplies have been moved in to storage until after the first of next year.
Please keep me in mind for birthdays and other occasions. I will have a fully finished and functional craft room again by January.
I think I say this every time but, I really love this doll!
The boy who drew this terrifying Zombie doll explained that it really did have legs, but that he ran out of room on the paper. So I, along with his Dad, got to kind of make them up. It was Dads idea to do the one shoe on and one shoe off, I just love how the toes turned out!
It seems like each new doll is my new favorite. I am looking forward to my next new favorite doll!
I would love to see what your children have come up with! Email them to me at Ashley@ChildDesigned.com
So, I am a terrible blogger… But I am still making dolls and loving it! Here is some of my more recent work.
I lost some of the original drawings when we got our new computer and switched things over. So forgive me that I don’t have a before and after for each one.
These dolls were each drawn as a self portrait by the family of a wonderful woman that teaches kindergarten here in southern Utah.
She had each of her nieces and nephews and each of their children draw a picture of themselves, they had no idea what it was for, then had me make them each a doll for Christmas last year. It was a big project, and a few did not quite get finished in time. But, for what I hear, they were a big hit (even with the teens and adults)!
I so wish I had all of the pictures to share! I am missing 3-4 all together :( But, I guess, that’s the way it goes with technology sometimes.
And I guess that’s what I get for not posting them more quickly.
Make sure you click on them to see them full size.
I got a huge order a couple of weeks ago for 14 dolls before Christmas. This means I will not be able to take any more orders until January. Christmas it always an understandably busy time, so please keep me in mind for other holidays as well Easter and Birthdays would be great! I would love to be busy other times of the year too.
Being a mother of 4 is not often helpful when I am trying to get things done, but I rarely have as much trouble as I had while trying to get these dolls finished! Thank you Shannon for being patient with me, and I really hope Henry loves is stick figure family.
I had a lot of fun turning this drawing in to these cute dolls! I generally like to stick to the drawing as closely as I can when making these dolls, but when it’s requested I will make changes. As I made each one a different color.
Henry’s Mom also had a great idea to make a little tag so that your child can always remember how old they were when they drew their doll. I think this is such a great idea, I am going to make it standard on all my dolls from now on!
Thank you Henry (and Mom) for sharing your drawing with me!
I made these for a friend for Christmas. They were drawn by her 8 year old son. He made the dog (Based on his pet beagle) for himself, and the bear (Which was later named “Scary Bear”) was for his … Continue reading →
Okay, one thing I am learning about myself, I am horrible at blogging! I finished this order almost a month ago and I am just now getting round to posting them.I had so much fun making these two dolls! These … Continue reading →
Wow, a week of sick kids followed by a week of sick me has really put me behind on my Christmas projects!
As of today, I will not be accepting any more Christmas orders. Sorry I had to cut it off early, I’ve had enough interest that I am going to be rushing just to finish the orders I already have. But, please, keep me in mind for Easter and Birthdays! :)
And, as promised, I will be posting Elli’s Super Hero Dolls tomorrow…
