I’m not usually very good at remembering to take photos in every stage of the process when I’m making dolls – I tend to end up with dozens of pictures of one stage, and then nothing until I’m three or four steps along!

Where would Anna be without her big sister Elsa? I found some sparkly felt to do a photo shoot with my little doll, and as you can see, she is extremely photogenic!

This was my first attempt at Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
