All done except for the clothing, which I won’t bother with right now since Ana undresses all the dolls and then hides their clothes. I also skipped the knee and elbow dimples, but I might do that soon.
I’m pretty happy with her even thought there are so many little things wrong. Like her left leg is longer than the right, her belly button is off to the right a little bit and I’m pretty sure her arms are still not laying right because I over stuffed them. But if I wasn’t being so persnickety, I’d say she’s pretty darn close to perfect. The girls love her and that makes my heart melt.
Here she is from… behind. tee-hee!
And here she is with her little sister who still needs hair and a body. I’m thinking about trying a new hair-do. But maybe that’s a little ambitious considering there is laundry and vacuuming and dusting and dish washing to do. Not to mention the much necessary Pregnant Lady nap.
In case you missed it, I made Kiki using a pattern tutorial created by Froken Skicklig and printed in Handmade Living magazine. It’s a UK magazine and really hard to find all four issues (Oct through Jan or issues #5-8). Your best bet is to purchase the electronic version on Yudu:
Issue #5 (October 2011) – How to make Kiki’s head.
Issue #6 (November 2011) – How to make Kiki’s face and hair.
Issue #7 (December 2011) – How to make Kiki’s body.
Issue #8 (January 2012) – How to make Kiki’s clothes.
