1 School Uniform Doll
And this is the latest school uniform doll from my lovely repeat customer Alisha. These dolls all seem to take on personalities of their own when I make them. I never know what they are going to be like until they start looking at me.
Checked Shirt Guy
This is the latest manga project from my wonderful repeat customer Paul. I had some good fun with this one and I really like his attitude!
Scary Wolf Girl
This girl in her scary wolf costume is based on a photo of the little girl in fancy dress for her dance competition. She is wearing the medal she won around her neck.
2 More School Uniform Dolls
This is the second set of school uniform dolls I made for Alisha. I hope the schools liked their hampers as it was such a kind thought.
2 School Uniform Dolls
This lovely lady Alisha asked me to make four school uniform dolls that she was going to give to the various schools with hampers for each one. I really had a lot of fun making these and I watched all the series of Happy Valley while doing so, so they will always stick in my memory!
Flip Flop Guy
This manga art doll is a bit bigger than the others. In the 30-40 cm range, while they are all 20-30 cm. The process for making them is exactly the same, but the yarn weight is different with the bigger toys using a thicker yarn. This is another one for Paul.
Black Tracksuit Guy
This is another of the toys I made for my manga art customer Paul. These are a lot of fun to do, although I didn’t notice his ponytail at first and had to put it in later 🙂
Pink Manga Guy
This was another one for my regular customer Paul. This chap has a tail and ears along with his lovely pink outfit. I make all the clothing separate to the body of the dolls so it can take some time, but is very rewarding.
Face Mask Guy
This is another toy made from a manga drawing for Paul. This chap has a facemask/mouth guard that can be removed. I used felt for the face again to get the details right, although I am terrible with the glue gun – it goes everywhere! 🙂
This doll was created from a manga artwork that a friend of Paul, the customer, had created. I used felt for the face here to try to get more of the anime look. Ollie went on a journey all the way to the friend in the USA. Ollie was the first doll I created for Paul, but not the last as you’ll see on this page, and I am always happy to take on his next project as they are such fun to work with.
These little men were actually representations of gurus for the lady who requested them for a newborn. We had to make some changes after they were finished, replacing the mouths with felt mouths and so on, but she was lovely and it was nice helping her to get the look she wanted.
