What was your inspiration?
This is a reworking of a toy I first made about 30 years ago for my niece. She is now 35 with a daughter of her own. The "upside down doll" has been around in different guises for many years.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that after all this time, I could remember how to do it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Projects like this are available to buy as kits. My advice is to have a go, read the instructions and enjoy. No two will ever be the same, let your creative juices flow.
