time out dolls
I saw where there was a lot of interest in time out dolls a while back and I just wanted to tell you that I have made over 50 or 60 of these dolls and I had a ball doing it.. they got to be part of the family.. the girls dolls I would make their dresses from scratch and make their hats match.. I use long curly hair on them and nice dress shoes with the dress along with leggings... I sometimes glue a small doll or teddybear to the hand to make it look real.. the boys I use thrift store finds and gym shoes or boots.. basball hats and short curly hair.. sometimes I will put a slingshot in their back pockets of the bib overalls or in their jeans.. even used a snake or two.. frogs.. etc. they are fun to make and grandson use to call them all our kids.. so if I took some to a craft show and sold then he wanted to know where all the kids went. if you are making them to sell, make sure you use a good pattern and nice work.. I have seen some really bad ones.
