Fox Girl

Ok. So this little girl with her fox rag doll is giving me more difficulties. Ugh.. Her hands were just too wide! When measured to her face they were the correct length...but just too wide,,,going for a more delicate hand,,,so chopped them off and ill add another joint,,, this might look cool with another gem at the wrists ,,,like built in bracelets!

I also decided on having her in a "Distressed"Jeans look. I used a pair of jean that recently "shrunk"!!!! Haha or maybe I m getting bigger? Ugh.... the collar are fur scraps i found and she will be draped in diamond and pearls. Her fox doll needs a TUTU for Sure!

Yes to a fox in a tutu! The jewelled joints on the wrists are going to look fab, and yes, they'd be like bangles. So pretty!

Your doll making abilities are incredible. The clothing style this year includes whimsical animals...Anthropologie has T-tops with foxes on them, way cool!
I will enjoy seeing the progress on your beautiful doll and the fox.
Cheers!
