Miss Tippy Toes!

Miss Tippy Toes

Miss Tippy Toes from Dolls and Daydreams Pattern company is a beautifully designed pattern that demonstrates how to construct a button arm joint so that the arms can move 180 degrees. I started this project back in December, after cutting everything out and embroidering the face
I stopped. 
That is right; this is not a painted face. You can buy the embroidery face design from her shop too! This beautiful face is called the Kawaii Doll Face.  IMG_2234
I enjoy making dolls but hand stitching the face can be challenging. Using my embroidery machine to stitch the face was fast and easy. I decided to embroider one piece of fabric and then go back and cut out the face using the template. That way I did not have to worry about the placement of the embroidery design. 

However once I embroidered the face, I was unsure if the project would work. See the stitch count was a little dense and I was worried the doll would have a wrinkly face. So I stopped the project, I didn't even want to try it. I put all of the cutout pieces in a ziplock bag and tucked it into my fabric stash. 
It wasn't until yesterday that I came across the zip lock bag. I took out all of the doll pieces and decided to give it try again.  She was worth it; the project turned out great, and my daughter loves her. 
I want to try this pattern again with new fabrics! 
I am so glad that I came across this project. She is super cute, and I know this doll will be loved. Can't wait to sew another doll, so she has a friend to play with.
