Polyester suede heads and bodies with hand painted faces and knitted wigs. The clothes are made with faux suede and scraps of sari silk from a fire salvage sale, some of it needlepunched in the machine for texture. Embellished with beads, sequins and embroidery. The boy has an embroidered jerkin and the girl has a knitted shrug.

Here's a back view to show the fancy jerkin!

These shoes look fabulous! I hate making shoes and always end up painting them or making toes instead!

Who said a shoemaker's job was easy. They are absolutely adorable and so perfectly made. Happy New Year!

Both the shoes and the sprites are adorable. Where do you get your poly suede?
Thank you for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments.

The shoes and ankles are just so real and that little smiler is wonderful. You are a very clever lady! This was my first visit to your doll blog.
Thanks for your comment on DG.
