It's all about love! Handmade heart favors

 It's all about love!  Handmade heart favors


..Hello!!!  Yes I'm still here, but with no spare time in my hands, I find it extremely difficult making new posts.  So, if you like to keep up with the things I make, you can always visit my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/craftymanoula.

This time of year, especially here in Cyprus is wedding and christening season.  Because of the lovely sunny weather, the beaches and all the beautiful places of Cyprus island, people prefer summer.

There is nothing more appropriate for wedding favor, than a heart.  So I'm posting about hearts, handmade hearts that can be just for decoration or aromatic.

Handmade pediatrician doll - Χειροποίητη κούκλα παιδίατρος

Handmade pediatrician doll

I love making dolls, especially making clothes and accessories for them.
Just before Christmas I was asked to make a custom made doll.  They wanted a look alike doll of a pediatrician.  Firstly I asked them to send me a photo of the doctor and started the work.
I used felt for the doll and her clothes, yarn for the hair. 
I did everything step by step, first chose which characteristics I would emphasise, then desighed her clothes and her medical robe and of course her stethoscope.  I also decided to make and two patients, a little girl and a baby boy. Last but not least, I had to come up with something like a doll display base (because here in Cyprus is very difficult to find anything that has to do with crafts), because they wanted to display the doll at the doctor's office.

First without a nose...


The stethoscope

Then I decided to give a little bit of bling to the stethoscope and remove the pink part with a black round ribbon and of course a nose to the doctor.

Hope you like them all!

HANDMADE DOLLS - Χειροποίητες κουκλίτσες

Hi everyone!  This time I'm posting about the last couple of dolls I made last month.



The first doll is a mermaid doll.  My daughter loves purple so I made her with mauve hair and tail. Mermaid doll









The second doll was a last minute inspiration and was made with felt, lace, fur, yarn and some fabric for her clothes.
