A couple of weeks ago my youngest girls and I stopped at a garage sale where we found these great wire sculptures. They decided they wanted to buy them with their own money so I agreed.
On our way home, one of them asked me if I could make them dolls to play with the pieces. At first I was skeptical, asking what she had in mind...soft stuffed dolls? She told me simple wire ones would be good.
I kind of jumped at this. I enjoy using wire in projects. And even though they are fairly simple, they became a bit more involved than what I started out thinking I'd make.
Later in the day, a dog was born too!
And, if you follow along on Instagram, you may know that magnets were added so they could be moved around on an old cookie sheet. One thing always leads to another it seems....
So that led to a gif. :)

Yesterday a ballerina was born. But, she needs a bit of tweaking yet.
On a side note: last night I went with one of my girls to see Ted Kooser and it was a wonderful evening!
