Fairy Art Doll Package
Create your own whimsical group of fairies, sprites, and pixies with this set of in-the-hoop designs. You get four different heads with expressive faces, plus multiple options for arms and legs for sitting, standing or something in between. This design package also includes a FREE video course on making button-jointed art dolls and four different wing options.
- Doll body & limbs can be stitched in a 5×7″ hoop
- Heads with faces can be stitched in a 4×4″ hoop
- The jumpsuit requires a 6×10″ hoop, or you can use the included pattern (red seam lines) to sew one with your sewing machine.
- Mix and match the body parts to create a custom gremlin or goblin art doll.
- Comes in these embroidery machine file formats: DST, EXP, JEF, HUS, PEC, PES, VP3, VIP, SEW, SHV, XXX
- The finished doll is 12″ tall in standing position and is intended as an art doll for home/holiday decor rather than a play doll.
- The doll designs in this package are compatible with other MEDIUM-sized cloth character dolls at Ballyhoo Creations. Mix and match to your heart’s content!
The video course is nearly two hours of instruction to make these and other jointed art dolls. It is divided into lessons so you can easily skip the parts you don’t need, or re-watch the lessons you want if you need to refresh your memory.
Your account ORDER page will include your downloadable files as well as a link to the video class immediately after you make your purchase.
