… but she didn’t listen.
I had a long flight from LAX to Hawaii last week (life is rough); there was no in-flight internet, and the book I’d brought was only mildly engaging. I decided to work on a new Valentine’s doodle, just for fun.
This little girl is available as a small print or poster in my Etsy shop.
I’ve been busy working on these new paper doll patterns for the Print-a-doodles section of the shop. I used to love to create paper dolls as a kid, and this week’s project reminded me why… getting creative with the clothes is the best part. I could spend hours coloring and decorating dresses and t-shirts and pants, mixing and matching with different accessories–it was always less about the play and more about the process for me.
Anyway, the result is two paper doll sets, one boy and one girl. Each set comes with two pages of pre-made outfits, plus a third template page that’s blank so you can design your own wardrobe. The dolls are designed to be printed on heavy 8.5 x 11 card stock for durability, but you could also add magnets to the back to create a fridge playset. You can print as many copies as you like, which make these an entertaining, yet inexpensive, party favor or gift. Just be careful with the scissors!
I hope you’ll find these sweet dolls versatile and inspiring.
