A couple of months ago, Doll Designer, Colleen Babcock had posted a doll titled: Treasures of the Deep. I, like several followers of her blog, immediately fell in love with the doll. After I sent her a private email, she asked whether I would be willing to test the pattern for her before it's release. No need to ask me twice, I jumped at the opportunity and, if I may add, so glad I did. This design is FANTASTIC and USEFUL. TOTD is not only a doll, but she also serves a purpose---displaying jewelry. How cool is that??? I cannot say enough good things about Colleen's work, it really speaks for itself.
I truly loved making this doll and found one process a bit of a challenge for me. The face, because it was done using only pencils, not paint, which is my forte. But guess what---I really like the look. I'm not sure if I would have felt as confident working with flesh toned fabric instead of the pale orchid color I chose, but Colleen's instruction is so thorough, I'm sure I would have done just fine.
Do keep an eye out for the release of this beauty---she's a real treat.
