Seriously everyone, this is absolutely, positively my last Christmas ensemble of 2105!
When I got the shipping confirmation number last Friday night for Linda Macario’s Penny I was in shock. It had been so long since I preordered Penny that I had stopped expecting her to show up any time soon. I didn’t think she’d be my Christmas doll, that’s for sure.
So, when Penny arrived on Monday I thought that she’s GOT to have a Christmas ensemble for her first Christmas. In between baking cookies, wrapping up boxes to send to long distance relatives, Christmas shopping, chauffeuring (school is still in session), and everything else, I managed to get something made for her.
Without further ado, here is Linda Macario’s new BJD, Penny. She is about 8 1/2″ tall and very chubby and cute. She reminds me of a Christmas elf. Luckily, I had a Little Darling Santa hat that I ended up not using for the Little Darlings “I Love Rudolph” set; Penny claimed it as her own when she saw it. She also took one of their wigs. And, … she took Talyssa’s beautiful green eyes. Now, that sounds grotesque, but that is the life of a BJD. I need to order more eyes.
It’s always a bit of a puzzle creating ensembles for new dolls, a fun puzzle, but it takes time to get it completely right. So even though there are some changes I’d like to make for Penny’s next sweater dress, I think she looks cute in her first. I also want to get a dress pattern made for her.
It was a cold day and quite windy so I only took a few photos of Penny outdoors before heading inside.
Thank you for helping me welcome Penny into the world. I think she’ll like it here.
