Tiny Eyes Collaboration!

You guys have been following along with the progress of the Tiny Eyes dolls, aye?!
The wonderful Dee, who might be the most talented person in the world, offered seven creatives the chance to design one of her dolls. I was one of the lucky seven.

I had so much fun doodling a sketch of the wee lass, picking out fabrics and sewing up a tiny dress and itty bitty rosette. I'm quite certain I've never stitched such small stitches before, but it was strangely enjoyable!
(Perhaps doll accessories is my future line of work? ; P

This is the finished product. Isn't she INCREDIBLE?! (If I do say so myself!)
Dee has done a most fabulous job.

The other dolls (which you can see over here.. though you've seen them, right?) are equally as fabulous. And you're in luck. They will be auctioned tomorrow!

To bid on the Croutons doll, or any of the others, you need to follow Tiny Eyes on FB, and join Dee's event. There you will be able to take part in the auction from Friday lunchtime, through to Sunday lunch. Be warned though, I've been saving my pennies, and I have my eye on at least one of the other dolls! Heh.

The dolls are also on display at the Walton Street Cafe in Te Awamutu today, from 8-2pm. If you're passing by, please call in for a cuppa and ogle them for me. I'm most envious of those who get to see them all in one place! So good.
