This Coraline doll is a little project i’ve been doing in my spare time since February, and i’m really pleased to finally have her on my toy shelf all finished. Now i just need to finish customising her mini-me! I had been oohing and ahhing over the Lalaloopsy dolls i’d seen in friends flickr streams, back around Christmas you couldn’t get Lalaloopsy’s over here (I’ve recently started to see them in Toys R Us and Tesco, but they’re so much dearer than in the US) As soon as I saw Mittens Fluff ‘N’ Stuff with her blue hair and button eyes i just had to make a Coraline. So my friend Lauren was kind enough to send me a lalaloopsy doll (and her mini version, so she can have a dolly of herself!) from the US.
I made all her clothes from scratch (you can get the patterns here) and made her hair bows from polymer clay. I didnt’t make the boots (oh how i wish i knew how to make doll shoes!) just painted them yellow to match her raincoat.
