A Baker's Dozen ... done!

... not muffins or cookies..but little Dotee Dolls.   They look like pretty little cupcakes to me ..   with icing and sprinkles ... or is it sparkles? ...

Originally I was joking about perhaps making a dozen...but, then... because I love to bake ... in my head (of course) it became a baker's dozen.  And, why not?  They are so much fun to do and so colourful and cheerful .. it's been a great few weeks of choosing the perfect fabrics and beads.

The first one or two were definitely a bit awkward ...well, maybe it was me who was a bit awkward.  Only because I didn't really know what the heck I was doing...but, I figured it out and sailed along with them soon after that.

And, here they all are....

I had this great idea (well, I think it's pretty cute anyway) for a photo of them in the muffin pan.. for blog fodder... so had to get busy and remake two of them that I had let fly the coop too early.













I borrowed Miko back from my neighbour just for the photo shoot so didn't have to re-make her ...













The second Roxanne is missing a little heart necklace as I couldn't find a second in my stash of stuff.... but, she is just as cute as ever.













So, now we have a dozen..













plus Astrid... (and, doesn't she just look so smug with her very own paper case)...













 ..   as an art installation on the coffee table ....


Thanks to Dot Christian for creating Dotee Dolls.... and, for the inspiration to do some fun little stitching projects  ...

Oh my GOSH! That is so adorable!!

I LOVE my Roxy! I brought her to work to cheer me up on a rotten day and she did the trick--it was not a bad day after all. Then I brought her home to take her photo....which I still have to do....

These are more beautiful in person--you just cannot appreciate the bead work that goes into these little treasures!
