Thanks again all. The sources for the patterns are listed in an earlier post of mine (page 2 of Whatcha Knitting? under Knit Dolls by LMC...) along with my other dolls I've knitted.
No, I didn't create the patterns, just the embellishments are mine. I look at photos of my grandkids and hightlight or try to, their characteristics. Kaeli has big blue eyes, and full pink lips for instance. One photo she sent me of herself wearing a green bikini, one with some what looked like purple/red streaks in her hair...you get the picture! (She is a beautiful girl and the doll does not do her justice...but is a characture of her) Today I added a tiny piece of rolled aluminum foil for a nose piercing! I'll have to mail her soon. Want to put her in a cute box nessled in colored tissue!
I like the spelling of your Kayleigh too! (As a teen I thought of changing my Lynn to Leigh! :teehee:
