UPDATE PART TWO: They're already gone in about 4 minutes! Goodness! And thank you! Wow, I'm amazed.
UPDATE: I just put the kits in the shop, sorry it was a little late for the East Coasters! We have guys working on our kitchen, so we were trying to stay out of their hair...you know how that goes. The kits are ready for the shop, and I'll be putting them in tomorrow (Thursday) sometime in the afternoon.
Thank you so much for all the excitement and buzz about them!
Several of you asked about the face pieces coming pre-painted, and I did consider it, but there are several reasons why I decided against it. On one hand, I thought that people might like to personalize their own dolls with individual expressions or faces. Also, and I know this from my own experience, but you just can't do the faces before the sewing. It has to be the last step, because so much depends on seam thickness, placement, etc. Doing the faces last is the best way, and that makes providing them in the kits next to impossible. Lastly, I wanted to offer very affordable kits, and hand-painted faces would necessitate them being a bit pricier. Sorry for the lengthy explanation!
Each one comes with completely cut-out doll pieces (100% wool felt hair, cotton muslin face and arms, quilter's cotton legs, and Black Apple fabric dress). In addition, each kit comes with a cute instruction card, and an illustrated insert that lets you know what the kit contains, and what else you will need to gather to make your doll! Each kit is sealed up in a clear sleeve, and a cute little "Black Apple Doll Kit" sticker emblazoning the front.
