I had a customer request a custom made "Ballerina" inspired doll for her daughters upcoming third birthday.
It took me a few try's to design the ballet slippers for the doll. This dolls feet aren't of normal size and shape, but I think I did a pretty good job! My customer wasn't sure if the tulle ballerina skirt would hold up to her daughters play so, I designed a skirt with a little twirl to it and to match her shoes and body fabric. My favorite part of the entire doll is her lace up ballet slippers!
This is the reason why I think Etsy is at it's best for customers who want handmade custom items. Customers could never request custom work like this with the CPSIA law in effect and they could never get this in the regular toy store. My customer will now have a true one-of-a-kind doll that NO ONE else has!
Happy Birthday little one!
