Welcome Home Cindy Lou

I must say that Cindy Lou is one of my favorite dolls (thus far).  I wanted to try using German Glass Blown eyes on one of my dolls and I just love how they turned out.  A little more difficult to work with but the end result is worth it.  I added a little crackle medium on her nose to achieve a more vintage look about her face.

I found vintage bisque doll hands and legs in my bucket of "parts" and I attached them the way they used to make baby dolls, with a vintage ticking fabric.  Then added her party dress and package.  I was fortunate enough to find a little scrap of dot paper in my stash that matched her dress.

Cindy Lou will stay in my personal collection.  I don't think I could give this one up.  She is so sweet sitting on her little shelf in our home.  Even Mr. D likes this one, although he thinks she needs a friend.
