My new Pixie Moppet "Arielle"




Well it's been awhile since I have posted.
I have been real busy with designing a new miniature cloth body to use with my Pixie Moppets.
I have finally come up with a body pattern that I am happy with.  I had a hard time because I
am using 100% wool felt, and the fabric, although I love it, is somewhat bulky.
I have had to figure out how to make a tiny 3" body, that is easy to turn.  I didn't want to sew the
seams on the outside.  I just didn't like the look.
I also had to design some shoes that would make the dolls self standing.
Dressing these little pixies is my favorite part.  Really no sewing, just a stitch here and there.
I have stacks of vintage lace, ribbons, and trims.
So until my Muse takes me elsewhere I am going to be making these Pixies for a while.
I am planning on listing her tonight on eBay.  I will post a link.
