This is her before picture:
|I have also gotten a better camera since making her. My new camera is so much better, what a difference in quality! |
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a before picture with the good camera before refurbishing her, but you get the idea :)
The first thing I did to refurbish Mini Me was take off her glasses. Although I often wear my glasses when I knit and crochet, I thought the glasses blocked her eyes and lashes. Maybe later I will make her some thinner framed glasses. The next thing I did was knit her a new top. My earlier puppets where all crocheted, but after making a few, I found that I liked the look of a crocheted body with knitted clothes better. The other reason I decided to make her a new shirt is because this one was a little too low cut and her boobs kept falling out. I removed the lip and nose ring, since I had taken my own out a couple years ago. And finally, I added stuffing to the boobs and head to give them a better shape. I am very happy with her make over and have decided that she is going to work with me, so I made her a name badge too!
I think Mini-Me looks better than ever and I can't wait to bring her to work with me tomorrow!
