Some New Rag Cloth Dolls I am Busy Working Away On for My Etsy store

A couple of weeks back I decided that I need to get busy again and so I have been working on some dolls as usual.  The first doll is going to be a 25 inch doll and I have used Onsaburg for the body of the doll and filled her with fiber fill but have also weighted her bottom with plastic pellets.  The doll is also stained with a walnut stain and baked in my oven at 200 degrees for about 25 min.  I have painted her facial features with oil based acrylics and her shoes, socks are painted with acrylics.  The hair is a blue wool yarn that I have separated and sewn into the head of the doll using quilting thread, the next step is finishing the outfit and getting her into my store.
The second rag cloth doll is 18 inches and is made from muslin, a darker muslin and stained.  She has been stained with instant coffee, vanilla and cinnamon, the nose and mouth are painted with  acrylic paints.  The eyes are black buttons that I have sewn into the head and the hair is an red acrylic yarn also sewn into the head.  
The last doll I knows looks very familiar to you all, yes... it's Katty again, this time she is made like the original, its nice I have been getting lots of requests for this doll and I will do up special orders for this doll in my Etsy store
This morning I am finishing up the dolls and will have them completed I have been working on other things, some painted plates but I will share them later on.  I have decided again not to do the contest giveaway I will later on, there have been a few more trials and I am getting through them with lots a faith in my Heavenly Father.  Things will get better and when they do I will be sure to have my next giveaway!  So I hope you all will hang in there with me and I will hang in there with you!
