They are just calico (muslin) cloth and felt with safety eyes.
They are quite cute and easy and quick to make now I have worked out the fastest way to put them together. I just don't know how Etsy will work. Some people don't have much traffic or sales, and the reality is that I would be very happy to just make and sell dolls online. But, but, but will this be a successful venture. I won't know unless I try. If you have some experience with Etsy and advice, it would be much appreciated.
This little doll is a vinyl OOAK by doll maker Margaret Leonard here in South Australia. I purchased this dear little elf at the Hahndorf doll show, but despite how cute he is................I don't want him. Not at all. So I will have to sell him too. I may have to put him on Ebay because I did nto make him and he is not anything like I make, so he is not for my Etsy shop.
This mermaid I made in a class with Pam Grose from Western Australia. She is about 60cm long with a wire armature and collon lycra skin painted in acrylics. She is also not my knid of doll. Learning the techniques was a great experience and Pam Grose had to be the most relaxed and friendly dollmaker I had ever met. She is amazing and talented and so willing to share what she knows.
So now I just need to make the time to list these items and release them to someone else who will appreciate them. When I have worked out the listings I will share the links
