Finished jeans for Ken


...Who still needs a better name.  Le sigh.

The tiny studs I ordered arrived this morning so I was able to add them as final embellishments to the jeans.   I love the look of these on doll clothes and they just finish off the garment nicely.








When I made the blue jeans, I deliberately chose some thin denim that had faded in parts and not so much in others.  I'm not sure about them now they're done.  While I like the contrast you can see on the pockets, I think the waistband should have been made from the more faded areas instead of the deeper blue bits.   I'm so pernicketty that I might make another pair... although the waistband will be hidden and the outfit is for my own dolls and I won't be selling it - so I s'pose it doesn't matter.  But still.



Next want a coat or a jacket. Still can't decide which.  I'm so dithery today.

  2. so cool and finished looking.. how about trying the bleach pens and putting the bleach where you want it and then wash them fast to stop the process when it gets to what you like?

    1. Oho. What are these bleach pens of which you speak? I haven't heard of those! Now I'm off to Ebay to see if we can get them here in the UK. I swear the USA has so many cool craft ideas available that we don't always see here over the pond.
