This is only the beginning...

I have been racking my brain, experimenting, and spending lots o' money trying to combine the two things that I love...Drawing and Dolls.  I found the right double knit fabric, I have found a fixative that is compatible with the pencils and inks.  Now all I have to do is get the pattern perfected, that in itself is a job.

I have always loved to draw freehand and I have made a lot of ACEO cards, but that wasn't enough for me.  The combining of the two seems like a perfect solution. 

Now if I can maybe get my house in order, it looks like a hurricane hit it.  I have such tunnel vision, when I am in the middle of something, I tend to let everything in the house go.  I do get around to it
Well I'm off to work on my to you later!


  1. Hi Dessa Rae I can't wait to see the doll when you finish. You are so talented I wish I could draw like that. I know what you mean about working on a project and letting everything else sit on the back burner. I find myself doing the same. Once a idea is in my head I can't stop until I get it done. Have a great weekend
    Peace and Blessings

  2. Great idea DessaRae! I think this baby will be gorgeous! I transfered a drawing to iron on transfer paper, and then made a pillow case, wonder if that would be a possibility here with a dolls face? Your drawings are so precious, can't wait to see the finished doll. xoxo Christel

  3. Hi Cheryl,
    Thank you so much or stopping by and for the very nice comments!!

  4. Hi Christel,
    I have done iron on transfers and they work out great, but I wanted to actually draw the face freehand on each doll. I made the pattern for this doll and I think the face is too big for the pattern. I will post pics later. I will have to keep the drawings much smaller because it distorts the features. I guess that's how we but it sure does take up a lot of time.
    Thanks for stopping by!!

  5. I love how dedicated you are! And what a great combo too. Such a cute face!

  6. Wow, I already loved your dolls, this is amazing!

  7. hello,is delightful to walk around here.desire a weekend litlit my you'l.hugs

  8. Your drawing is gorgeously sweet.

    I know about tunnel vision: I've had it for so long my house will probably never be in order again! =)

    Thanks for the visit and kind words about my blog.

  9. Years ago, the first dolls I created were fabric and I drew and coloured the faces. I loved it, and it is something I have not done in ages. Keep us posted on this new development of yours. The face above is excellent!



  10. I love the drawing itself, but I know what you mean about tunnel vision and hurricanes, can't wait to see what transpire...


  11. Did you draw the baby's face onto the fabric? It is fantastic! What a wonderful idea! Can't wait to see what you come up with next! xoxo
