I am still in the process of making Bru dress but I also started making another doll.
I will be joining the World Doll Day Show and Sale in Sacramento CA on April 6th ( Sat) and I will take a little 10″ Jumeau for sale. I made a prototype for myself early this year and I love her so much, I was looking for the jumeau body mold for that size to reproduce the doll. And I finally acquired the mold set so I can make the same doll to offer. I will be making the same dress since I still have the materials left. This doll will be offered at the show first and will be available to the public if she doesn’t sell at the show.
I have used many different shades of antique ecru silk fabrics but this deep tan shaded ecru silk from this Victorian wedding gown is the most gorgeous shade by far. I will be making a dress for my 14” Bru with this ecru and red silk combination.
Attempted to make a Jumeau arm band with a hot foil pen. Still needs lots of practice but good enough for my little Jumeau for now. I drew the ” Bebe Jumeau” Logo on antique red silk ribbon with gold foil. This hot foil pen melts gold foil to adhere to any surface. But the silk ribbon is so narrow and that makes drawing very challenging.
I was going to take a break for the rest of this year but couldn’t help thinking about dressing this little girl. Before I start on my next doll, I will make a Jumeau dress for this 11 inch Jumeau I made a few years ago. I have picked this antique pink fabric for her. She will be so sweet when she is fully dressed . ( sorry she is not for sale)
