This idea hit me out of the blue, I do love those ones! After designing a beach fun set for 4 1/2” fashion dolls, I realized that they needed MORE, and so was born the wading pool and ‘inflatable’ palm tree set. (Please note, tree does not really inflate, it is filled with polyester stuffing)
Crochet: Doll
This mini mannequin measures 4 1/2” made with size 10 thread, and was designed to model some of the clothes I’ve designed for 4 1/2” fashion dolls. Although they will fit some of the outfits, not all outfits will fit due to their larger feet.
