.: Mexican Dolly 2 :.

How are you?? I hope you're fine, I'm catching up with the journal, didn't post yesterday because I took Willy to the airport (business trip) and then I went to a Big fabric warehouse in TJ , It's heaven in there they have really amazing fabrics ^_^ they gave me some samples catalogs and the wholesale price lists, I'm so exited about this project .. I'll tell you more as It resolves itself.. I don't want to spoil it. ;)

Remember about the little guy I told you in This Post Well I finally finished him,It took me a while to make his clothes and hair, he was more difficult to sew than Rosita but now that he's all done he will keep company to Rosita , I don't know he's name yet... I'm thinking of Juan? Jose? any suggestions?


He measures 13.5 inches tall and filled with the same hard polyfil like Rosita,I made his shirt with a nice cotton fabric piece that I was going to throw away, good thing that i keep it , because i think he looks nice ;) the sad thing is that I don't have more of that fabric and i wanted to make him another shirt.


Awww. They look so Happy Together ^_^


He's pants were hard to sew, I didn't had a pattern and I ended up with 2 pairs of funky-ugly crooked pants


I think they make a really nice couple don't you think?

Well ta ta for now, I have to make dinner and some pending errands, Enjoy your day and
♥ Take Care

.: Mexican Dolly :.

Happy Monday !!

Hope you enjoy your weekend, I did relax a bit watching movies with my family and playing the drums like crazy lol my arms and legs hurt X_X but it totally worth it :).

I've been wanting to show you a little Mexican dolly I made months ago, this work is completely different like everything I've done before, I used hard canvas fabric and other typical Mexican textiles.The design is based on the traditional dolls they make in Oaxaca , I changed the face and left the typical clothing.

I hope you like her, I've been experimenting with a lot of techniques lately and I have discovered new and exiting things I want to learn, Most of the time I tend to feel quite overwhelmed about all the different styles I like and want to work on lol.

Well here it is, meet - Rosita ^_^ (little rose)
She's 12 inches tall and filled with hard polyfil like old rag dolls, I noticed that it makes a huge difference when you use soft or hard filling, these dolls usually are very hard. For the hair I used a weird Mexican yarn I found in Tijuana and I really like how it turned out.


Scarlett loves her and she requested a little boy companion for her, so he's in the works right now I still need to dress him and sew some body parts, I will introduce you to him when I'm finished.

That's all for now, Don't forget to make your paper doll! :)
Take Care and See you around ♥
