2012 Goals!

I already made my 2012 sewing goals list over at my main blog, but I thought I'd pull out the doll-related items here. . .

2012 Doll Goals

New Body for Fanny
New Wig for Fanny
First Outfit for Fanny

And with regards to that last item. . . OMG seriously, she is still sitting here in her chair with not a stitch of clothing on! I made her a chemise, so I should at least put that on. . . But I confess I lost motivation to sew for her after I decided that I didn't like her body (especially that she's stuck in one position, which is neither standing up nor sitting down, but rather, something awkward in between), and then on top of that, the sawdust settled and now she's floppy. And I decided I didn't like her wig style either. So. . .

I have grand plans to make up my own body pattern, and have found some nice faux leather that I'm going to try and use for the body, and that is step one. Then, I've purchased some lovely mohair for my next wig-making attempt (which I think will go well now that I have a better idea of how much hair to put in it). And then, I hope I will again feel inspired to sew for her!

Other things that may get done in 2012 include a new 18th century ensemble for Charlotte (already patterened) or any of her other works-in-progress, and/or attire for the china heads, but I'm not making them true goals for the year, as I want to focus on Fanny.

Also, there is the slight possibility that I may try my hand at making my own porcelain doll. I've been reading a lot about it, and it's starting to seem like it's something I could do, which either means I could do it, or it means I'm getting another crazy over-the-top idea in my head, LOL! We'll see. . .
