the makings of a handmade she-ra doll

she-ra doll she-ra doll she-ra doll she-ra doll she-ra doll she-ra doll she-ra doll True’s been requesting a handmade She-Ra doll for awhile now, and her wish comes true this Christmas. I think when Brave got a handmade version of her favorite superhero, that’s when True started asking for her own.

I wasn’t sure how to make this She-Ra doll happen, but I sketched out a couple ideas, and then just made things up as I went. I started off with the regular rag doll form first, then went from there adding details that would make it the Princess of Power. After I got the head and hair all done, I got super excited because I could totally see the She-Ra doll coming to life. I love the way it turned out and I’m pretty sure True will too. Ben and I so excited to give it to her!!!

I can’t wait for Soul (and Glow) to make a request one day. I love the challenge and seeing an idea come to fruition, and then seeing my girls get so happy about something I made for them. Are you excited?! There’s only one more sleep left until Christmas!!!

    You’re amazing! I didn’t have time for handmade gifts this year, but handmade dolls are on the top of my list to make for my kids. Is the hair yellow felt, and then stitched down to the head?

  7. This is epic! Well Done!
