Thumbelina doll- Degetica

In the strange saturday night, too hot for this time of year, I had the idea to work something small than ever. As I told you I like  small, meticulous things because they get me out of dreaminnes:)

In ciudata seara de sambata, mult prea calda pentru aceasta perioada a anului, mi-a venit ideea sa lucrez ceva mic, mic de tot. Va spuneam ca imi plac lucrurile mici, migaloase pentru ca ma "aduna" de pe unde ma risipesc cu gandurile:)
So I decided that I will make  a Thumbeline  that is the prototype of the smallest doll in the world (of many I know).

I started with the beginning:) creating designs, I didn`t want an already known pattern that`s way  I created my own. I don`t think it is most appropriate but it is mine and that's it:)
After I decided, about   the look of the doll, I began looking for the raw material for manufacturing it, of course with what I already had in the equipment .
And I stopped at the felt for the body , curly wool for hair, sequins and beads for embellishment and wooden ball for head  doll that I painted with acrylic paints.
ah! by the  way! ribbon of green organza for wings because Thumbeline has finally wings, right?:)
Asa ca am hotarat ca voi face o Degetica pentru ca e prototipul celei mai mici papusi din lume (din cate cunosc eu).
Am inceput cu inceputul :)crearea designului; nu am vrut un pattern deja stiut si l-am creat pe al meu propriu. Nu cred ca e cel mai nimerit dar e al meu si gata :)
Dupa ce am hotarat , vreo ora, cam cum va arata , in mare, am inceput sa caut materia prima pentru confectionarea ei; bineinteles cu ce aveam in dotare deja.
Si m-am oprit la fetru pentru corp, lana buclata pentru par, paiete si margele pentru embellishment si bile din lemn pentru cap, pe care am pictat fata papusii cu vopsele acrilice.
ah! sa nu uit! ribbon din organza verde pentru aripi caci Degetica are aripi in final , nu?:)

And I started working:)

That was the most creative and attractive work, as I move with its construction I was thinking  how to embellish it with beads or make hair style.. 
The hard part of the "birth" it was the part when I had to mount it; because it is  very small I didn`t know how and what  must be mount first to  make my job easier ...
 I managed to build one by learning from mistakes but I was a little disappointed initially.
si m-am apucat de lucru:)
Asta a fost partea cea mai creativa si mai atractiva a muncii; pe masura ce avansam cu constructia ei ma gandeam si cum sa o impodobesc cu margele sau cum sa ii arangez "parul"
Partea grea a "nasterii" ei a fost acea parte cand a trebuit sa o montez; dat fiind foarte mica nu stiam cum si ce sa montez mai intai ca sa imi usurez munca...
Si din greseli si reluari am reusit sa o construiesc dar am fost cam dezamagita initial .

prima thumbelina :)

And because it was alone and my appetite was stimulated I did another three twin sisters for my first doll because not be bored :)) 
And now I  have four pretty funny thumbeline , size only 3.5 "!
Painstaking but relaxing:)
Si pentru ca era singurica si mi s-a deschis apetitul pentru migaleala i am mai facut inca trei surioare gemene sa nu se plictiseasca :))
Si iata cum am acum patru degetele dragalase si haioase , mici de numai 3,5 "!
Migalos dar relaxant :)

I don`t know if you like them or not, but they amuse me and  it was a real pleasure to create them because  their process of creating was very relaxing ... for me:)
Nu stiu daca va plac sau nu dar pe mine ma amuza si in primul rand mi-a facut o reala placere sa le creez pentru ca procesul lor de creare e foarte relaxant...pentru mine:)

Have a good week :)
See you soon!
Va doresc o saptamana linistita :)
Pe curand!
