As a child, I didn't really have many dolls. I was more the soft toy sort of kid. Can someone please explain to me why I suddenly have a fascination with dolls? Especially Blythe dolls.
I started my collection last year thanks to my friend Janelle and her daughter. The more I look on the internet for Blythe, the more I realise I am not alone in my adult love of these dolls.
Below is my latest addition. She arrived today and her doll name is Meowsy Wowsy. I fell in love with her the first time I saw her on the internet. I am not a cat person but I love red hair, and her eye colour is slightly different to my other dolls. (For those not in the know, Blythes have four eye colours).
I am having difficulty coming up with appropriate names for my other Blythes but I know straight away that this one shall be call Kitty. You see my cousin has red hair and her name is Kitty, and considering the doll is dressed like a cat, then this name fits perfectly for more than one reason.
The photos aren't the best. I took them with my phone and I think there might be a fingerprint on the lense.
Well we are at the start of a heat wave right now and I for one am getting hot just looking at her in this outfit. I also got some beautiful fabrics today so I will have to see what I can make for her.
I am enjoying making the doll clothes. At uni I learnt to make patterns so I may even start making up my own designs. One day. :)
