Looking Like A Real Nursery

Look at all these babies! In the crib - 5 babies. Not to mention there is 1 on the bed and 1 in the bouncer! One got shipped off today to her new home and the one on the bed will be leaving in a few days. Two in the crib are for sale. Maybe 3. The one in the bouncer - for sale. 

Then there are 3 more sets of body parts/heads waiting to get started and 2 more sets on the way! Also, my daughter wants me to make her an Asian reborn baby - and I promised that one by Christmas. 

Whew! I never dreamed I would be making dolls at the age of 56, but here I am and loving it.

Blog Name Change

Oops...I did it again. I went and changed my blog name. 
I have been It's Me Again, Pamela for a long time - but it was time for a change. 

So - how did I come up with Pittypat's Reborn Nursery?

Pittypat Hamilton has been a favorite character name from one of my all time favorite movies for over 25 years. Gone With The Wind. Aunt Pittypat was Scarlett O'Hara's aunt by marriage and Melanie's aunt, as well. She was a roly poly woman with white ringlet curls. Always about to faint and needing her smelling salts. lol Anyway, the name has always been special to me. 
When I first got into computer games, virtual places, chat rooms, etc. Pittypat was always my username. So naturally when I was looking for a name for my Reborn Nursery - Pittypat just sounded perfect.

My "Official" Pittypat's Reborn Nursery Shirt

Today I ordered my "official" tee shirt from Vistaprint
with my Pittypat's Reborn Nursery logo. I just love Vistaprint. 
So - now I have my business cards, address labels, tee shirt - and they are so cute!

Here is a close up

My daughter does decals for shirts and she is going to create something for me, as well. Can't wait to see what she comes up with!

Two New Babies in the Nursery

I have 2 new Reborn babies ready for adoption! The first one - I have him as a boy - he is 6 pounds and 20 inches long.

The 2nd one I have as a girl and she is 4 pounds and 19 inches long. Of course either can be the opposite gender.

The boy is my first one to do as an awake Reborn. I love his beautiful eyes. 

I thought about making him a girl and actually that was the plan - but even with girl clothing, he looks like a boy baby - so a boy, he is, at least as long as I have him in the nursery.

The girl is my first to root hair. What a tedious job! No wonder than generally cost more!

I am already working on my next one. I just love creating these lifelike dolls. It is a wonderful hobby to get in to. Now if I can just sell them! LOL

Reborn Head Do Over

I have been wanting to redo Jackson' head ever since I got him. Today is the day! I didn't know what I was going to find when I took his head off. He does have fine glass beads and they are in a balloon (most people use nylons) I am wondering if that makes the beads have less freedom to move and that is why it feels so impacted. Then he was packed very tight with poly-fil. 
Headless Jackson

A whole lot of poly-fil.
 The glass beads were inside a balloon. I bursted the balloon to make sure it was glass beads.
Filled to where my finger is pointing.

I am removing half of they glass beads and half of the poly-fil. I think he will be much more realistic feeling and he will not be so top heavy. You can watch the video here
