How to Paint Dolls Eye's

I now have the eye's for my Stump Doll painted


I was inspired by Doll Makers Muse to create
3D eye's for my cloth dolls and learned how to 
install my eye's and add eye lids and eye lashes.

Stump Doll " The Beginning"



I've had this pattern for over a year now called "MADAME" by Arley Berryhill. This will be my first "Stump" doll. I usually give them legs, but this doll is in a full length, tight dress. No legs needed.

I'm determined to finish this doll. I will post how far I get each day. 



Supplies Needed

  • Pattern "MADAME" by Arley Berryhill
  • "Skin" Fabric 15"x20" I like to use high quality quilting muslin
  • Body/Dress Fabric 1/2 yard (woven cotton, satin, brocade or metallic can be used. I'm using bridle satin, it is sturdier that other satin's and is easier to sew with.
  • Polyester stuffing for the body.
  • Wire - 16 to 21 gauge for armature 21"
  • Water soluble chalk pencil
  • Good fabric scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Thread that matches your fabric

Carlo"
