Busy bee here with another new pattern that was a workshop only previously. Destiny, a 17 inch elegant doll is distinguished in sexy stiletto heels that show off her shapely legs and insert into her stand or allow her to stand freely. She can be Gothic in black with a spider tattoo on one breast or by changing the color and clothing options a glorious bride or elegant debutant.
Techniques in this pattern include needle sculpting a cloth face and applying cloth over cloth to hide face seams, step-by-step face color details, detailed bead work to create an elegant collar and wrist bands including the peyote stitch, picot stitch and free form beading as well as painting a faux marble base. Learn secrets to making elegant hands with tips to stitch and turn perfect fingers as well as techniques to properly wire, stuff and shape hands in realistic poses.
This pattern is available at Dollmakers Journey and Craftsy, will be on my brand new Etsy site in the next few days, and will also be on Doll Street and at Joggles.
