New SkyGirls!

New dolls listed in the

Quilt & Fiber Arts Shop

12-inch-SkyGirls

My goal with these 12 inch dolls was to come up with a design that is easier and faster to produce so that the cost could be more accessible to everyone. 

The dolls have all of the basic  characteristics of the original dolls.

 

 

Kimmy-2The dolls faces are still  hand painted but I carved a stamp to help speed up the process.

It looks a little creepy…  but it works!

 

 

 

Ann-Marie-1The Hair is the same too.  It’s secure and done up with bows.  It’s long but it’s easily cut if you like it shorter.

 

  Blossom-1

 

The dresses are a new original design in a sweet bell shape with heirloom embroidery by sewing machine, buttons and black and white trim, bows, and vintage fabrics depending on the doll. 

And of course, a doll can be custom ordered with your favorite colors and characteristics important to you!  See Custom Made!

About the Quilt & Fiber Arts Shop:

For those of you who are not familiar with Etsy, Wikipedia says it best:

Etsy is an e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items as well as art and craft supplies.  It has been compared to “a crafty cross between Amazon and eBay,”[2] and to “your grandma’s basement.”[

This is a fabulous opportunity for artists to sell our creations and offer credit card options at a reasonable cost.

Give the Perfect Gift:  Customized!

One of the best things I do is offer customized Quilts, Art Quilts, Bags, Dolls, Baby Play Mats or whatever you have in mind.  On the upper right of this page you will see the widget that says “Made Just For You”.  There you can learn more about how I calculate the cost of custom made items.  I will be adding more information to that page as I have more samples available to view.  Just tell me what you have in mind and I will work hard to make your idea come to life.

SkyGirl© Dolls are an original creation I’ve been developing over several years.  If you order a custom doll, you can choose your colors, fabrics, characteristics and hobbies specific to the recipient.  Read more about the process and the SkyGirl story.

And just a couple more thoughts

If you read on, particularly the post: The Art of Going Pro, you will see that few months have been quite busy and full of learning new things.   In the post you can see all of the resources I found and steps I took to get to where I am now.

Check the Workshops page to find information about workshops I offer at The Gallery On High in Pottstown, PA.  Every season I offer something new for beginners, kids and adults.  See the Summer Session post to see what’s coming up.
