Nakie Baby is here :)

Yes the nakie baby is here and I need to get to work on her. As soon as I finish this post I am off to put some clothes on her. I can't wait... I have so many wonderful fun ideas in my head. So now I have to choose just one, it will be hard to do that .. but one I must choose ;) I can't decide if I want this baby to be a boy or a girl... now that's the first hard decision. After that it will be smooth sailing all the way :)

Ok here is a before Photo of the Nakie Baby :)
For your viewing pleasure.. I have also used my vintage
toy sewing machines from my collection as an added prop :)

Sorry about the poor images its cloudy here and my house is dark inside... Its been raining cats and dogs the last couple of days. I hope the finished photos are much better ;)


I spent the afternoon working on the Nakie baby... I have decided its going to be a she ;) I have her dress designed, cut out and sewn. I think it turned out fantastic. But you will have to wait to see it finished. She is stained, stockings painted and boots painted .. with light sanding. I am loving how she is coming along. I would have had her mostly together but her body is still wet from the staining.. so I have been working on other parts of her ;) Like the clothing and accessories :) I am still trying to figure out what color I want her hair.. Does anyone have a suggestions :) I have decided that I am going to sew on her face. I really like the way the eyes turn out if you use buttons. I am always pleased with the result by hand sewing the faces that way. They seem to have that whimsical look about them.. really home made with love :)
