Hoodie dolls continue to be popular. Probably because they are realistic. So many real people wear a hoodie when they go to the barn. These ladies all look like they are cranky, annoyed, or judging us for something. I was really hoping for a pleasant faced doll. Maybe some day. I do at least like that I took the time to fiddle with them so they don't look doll-like. Just angry.
I am thinking of making some more casual English dolls for my live sale. Maybe without hoods and with half chaps. I do have "zip up" hoodies that will be available, and having a doll not wearing a hood already would be good. And after redesigning the half chaps pattern I am thinking it would be nice to make some more dolls in half chaps. I haven't committed to anything just yet.
I am going to try very hard to make some saddle bags this week. I really hate making saddle bags. I want to have at least a few done for the sale. Maybe if I just get them out of the way that will work. Like eating your vegetables before you can eat dessert (I actually like vegetables though...).
