What are you most proud of? I love the way each doll comes together and seems to get a unique spirit. No two dolls, even if I used the same pattern ends with the same personality.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Dont get discourages with the process. It may look and feel like the doll is looking weird or unbalanced but make sure you finish. The unfinished dolls can look pretty funky! Painting the face is the hardest and most nerve wrecking part for me. Practice on a paper before. Use a pencil to lightly outline first, then use the marker or paint. Drawing the face on a paper then cut out the eyes,nose and mouth holes. This helps with maintaining proportions and placing. Place the cut paper over the dolls face and then draw inside the cut holes.
