Ivy has bought a pair of wedding dolls from me couple of month ago. She brought them for her wedding shoot in Hong Kong! Wah, I've not been to Hong Kong before but my dolls did! Not bad!

Their big day is coming soon. During month of March, she contacted me and wanted me to make 10 dolls for her sisters (姐妹). All her dolls had to be different. It was a challenge then, cos I was doing my confinement and not sure would be able to deliver. Thank God her big day falls in month of June and she needed them by end of May. THANK GOD! That's mean I have 2 months to complete them.
I had no clue what to do, so I asked for her all her sisters' profiles. To make my life easier, she asked me to make 5 angel dolls with different colors and another 5 customized according to her sisters character & favorite colors.
For these set of dolls, I'm using plastic eyes. My brother was the one who suggested that I should put eyes. Since he is the arty person, I should just listen to him. ;) The outcomes are AWESOME!
Doll 1: She's married. Has a bubbly & chatty personality. Also loves beaded stuff. Well, Ivy said she like to act cute. =P
I've made a doll with a bum at a centre and tie the bum with crocheted flowers. She looks mature but at the same time, cute.
Doll 2: She loves purple. Very artistic person and always tied her hair. She loves nature.
So, I've made a doll with side bum and wears a lilac dress with small flower.
Doll 3: She is romantic and likes to dream. Her favorite colors are pink and blue.
Hmm.... Dreamy, so I've decorated this doll with lots of flowers.
Doll 4: She's a teacher and has short hair. Her favorite colors are darker colors, like black, gray and dark red. Ivy said, she doesn't like cute stuffs...
Making this doll was a challenge because I don't really like to use dull colors to make my dolls. It took me awhile to think of what I should do. Well, the outcome is pretty cool! My brother likes it a lot.
I've made a red & black dress for the doll & crocheted a cardigan for her.
Doll 5: She's love pink! She loves to bake...
When I read her profile, straight away I knew what I wanted to make. A doll with a chef hat! Ivy loves her the most. Cute right?
Lastly, 5 angel dolls... Loving all of them.
I've made crown for them instead of usual halo. Besides that, all of them hold a heart.
I'm glad that Ivy LOVES them all!!! Her mom even asked whether any of these was for her. She plans to keep one of the angel dolls, but now, seems like she needs to give it away, to her mom.
