I made up the Woodland Elf that I mentioned last Wednesday.......see her made up here ...... but I wasn't very happy with the legs and arms.
I wasn't able to get the size of beads that the pattern asked for so in order to finish the doll I had to use some large seed beads which were half the size of the required bead. . They were the best fit/shape and the legs and arms went together fairly well using them. I tried other bead styles as I have quite a variety but they weren't working for me.
The little Elf is very cute and she was lots of fun to make but.......well :(
So I decided to see if I could make another type of knee joint for this small doll and I came up with this.....
I think I like it better:)
I also changed the arms but that's a whole other story. I hope the designer doesn't mind but I think that's how change happens......and, to be honest I can never leave a pattern alone and just make it.....I always fiddle about with it until I'm happy.
I love this little doll.....she's such a cute size that fits into your hand. I can see me making a lot more.
I'm linking up today with The Needle & Thread Network ...please go visit and see the work of some very talented Canadian bloggers:)
