    My current project is wall art head and shoulders cotton steampunk and other characters. I have more time for my sewing passion now I have retired. Fantasy dolls are my favourite things to make✂ï¸ðŸ›¢

    I have just finished a couple of projects - my hippie lady and Meg sitting on her broomstick!

    Thanks very much for your comments. No matter how small I want the eyes to be they always turn out bigger than I wanted!!

    Good morning, I have managed to get a better face for my Mermaid this time but still nothing like the one in the book. I also designed a little pixie which worked out okay I think, however, my husband commented on the skinny legs and I pointed out they were supposed to look like this! Pat

    Hi, I am glad you also find the noses tricky, they look so perfect in the book. I have made a few practice heads which does help. Jan Horrox seems to be the only person to have a fantasy doll book with patterns on the market at the moment which is a shame. I love making the dolls, I find them so addictive but am running out of space to put them!

    Oh, I forgot to say that I am going to make a fantasy mermaid next. My very first attempt at this was okay but I must admit that her face did rather resemble a fish face and not a beautiful sea nymph

    Thanks very much; I have just retired and am getting back into crafting again on a regular basis. It has all been a bit hit and miss over the years what with bringing up children, looking after my pets and working full time, so am thoroughly enjoying myself at the moment. Still busy as well with husband, dog, cat and six chickens as well as grandchildren!

    Just finished my latest Steam Punk lady - Saffron and have just realised I still have to put on her fingerless gloves! I love dressing my dolls and am forever on the look-out for bits and pieces for embellishments.

    Wednesday and wet

    Good morning, Just been out for a quick cycle before settling down to making another fantasy doll. Rain has been on and off and my hayfever is being a pain, especially with blurry eyes which is not great when I am trying to hand sew and draw a face!! Never mind, will press on regardless. Here's hoping the sun shines later on.

    Little experiment

    Fab idea, must give it a go. I find myself these days holding onto clothes I would be giving to charity in case I can utilise them but if they are too old looking, I always take off buttons and zips and hubby uses the cotton material in his workshop

    Thanks very much for your advice, I will try the nose with the two stitches either side and make sure the eyes are an equal distance from the nose; I think I do too many stitches on either side of the nose hence the long nose! Pat

    This is Titania and Cecile. I do have a problem getting the nose right with the face sculpting, it's either too long and thin or short and fat!!! Any tips on how to get this right would be greatly received. I have tried following the instructions given in the Jan Horrox book but my dolls noses never look like hers
