Red And Aqua Christmas Clothespin Dolls

 I added a few more clothespin dolls  to my Etsy Shop.

I LOVE the  Red and Aqua combo, it's one of my favorites. 
 I love making Christmas stuff! I wish the season didn't pass so quickly....
 Now to finish my 2 Gingerbread girls and a Santa and Mrs Claus pair I started. I also need to get a start on my Christmas Raggedy Ann dolls! The days seem to be going by too quickly lately...

Breast Cancer Awareness Raggedy

 I saw this adorable pink gingham breast cancer awareness fabric at the store and I decided to make a rag doll for breast cancer awareness month that's coming up in Oct.
 I love that pink hair! She is in my Etsy shop now!
 The last pic of her at the bottom here is my favorite! She looks so cute!!

Christmas Clothespin Dolls

I finally got some Christmas clothespin dolls finished!
 Just added them to my Etsy Shop!
 I'm really enjoying making these little dolls!
Of course just like any doll dressing them and adding the cute details are the most fun, not so much the painting part... lol
 I can't wait to make more!

Custom Order Fall Annie

 This little cutie is for a custom order. I LOVE the way she turned out!
 I needed a pumpkin for her lap so I kinda made this one up as I went along...
 I like the way it turned out too so I might even make more of them in little sets of 2 or 3.
 Hope you enjoyed seeing my Fall Pumpkin Annie

Clothespin Dolls

 Meet my little Winter Wonderland Clothespin Girls!
 I've been wanting to try and make some clothespin dolls for years now and I gave it a try a year or two ago and I just couldn't make them... I didn't really know where to start or how to go about making them.. so I gave up..
 But then I recently came across THIS BLOG  and she has an awesome tutorial on how to make clothespin dolls ( you will find it in the right column if you scroll down a bit) Hers are made with a pincushion but I used the parts about how to make the doll as a starting point .
 And even though mine are a bit different I would have never been able to make them without that tutorial... It helped so much!! I'm so happy I finally got to make some!! I first fell in love with clothes pin dolls when I discovered Wee Cute Treasures around 2009. She doesn't make them anymore but you can look at her sold items from her Etsy shop and see how cute they are!! She really was my inspiration! There are several others that sell clothespin dolls /cake toppers on Etsy now, even wedding cake toppers which are super cute!! Check them out when you have time.. So many talented artists on Etsy! I love looking at everyone's creations!
I have several Fall and Christmas ones in the works! Can't wait to show you when they are done! I will be putting these and several other clothespin dolls in my Etsy shop in the next couple of weeks so check back soon if you are interested!
