Doll #1: I was the first person to get to add something to this doll. I knew that her owner liked vintage things and had suggested a flapper theme. She had already stitched the sweet face on her, and so the next logical step was to add some hair. I couched down charlotte seed beads in a little flapper hairstyle and added a tiny carved mother of pearl button accent and drop earrings.
Doll #2: Apparently she had split a seam on her shoulder during her making and had gotten a little daisy tattoo to cover up the scar...so I felt she could handle a rather "wild" hair-do. Again, her face was already stitched, so I felt she just needed some hair to really pull off the spunky personality. I sewed a couple different kinds of deep red/black novelty yarn all over her scalp, and was pleased with the resulting hairstyle.
Doll #3: Yes, I could do something other than hair, but to me the dolls look pretty naked without it...so, I wanted to give this doll her hair as well. She did have her jewelry on and a colorful ribbon skirt, but she refused to talk to me unless I gave her some fun locks. :) The owner of this doll likes Halloween and witches, so I was thinking along the lines of a "good witch" to go with the elements that were already made. The technique for attaching hair worked really well on the second doll, but I wanted this one to have a different finished hairstyle. Long straight purple locks...tucked behind her ears, and I think it ties in with her jewelry and personality nicely.
The next doll is not finished yet, but I'll post some photos before I pass her to the next person. Since she already had some hair when she came to me...I was able to focus my attention elsewhere this time. :)
