Don't Look Now...I'm naked!

He he! I can hear my kids now...ohh Mum!!! But there is a reason for my silliness today. I found that the other day when I was stuffing my first Tilda doll, a few creases appeared around the neck...I even pulled out my stuffing and re-did it, but there was still a few crease lines. I always have Crisp spray starch in my sewing room, as I use it all the time, so I thought I would spray some on whilst I was stuffing the neck on this doll...and it worked!!! So to give you a demo and a before and after, so you can see the difference...


In the photo above I have sprayed the Crisp in the crease in the waistline area, (between the crochet flowers lol) and then left it to dry without touching it

And this is the after pic!!! It really does work.

This is the Tilda doll on the front of the new magazine that's now out. (And available at Newsagencies)...she has the cutest hat, so I thought I would add a brim to the little crochet beanie to give a simalar style

I am quite pleased how it turned out!

Now I had better go and make some clothes for my naked Tilda girl...lol!

I am also going to go out and buy a truck load of Crisp spray and spray some on myself to see if all my creases/wrinkles come out!!!lol!

Bye For now
Lisa

Now if that works on humans you are going to be a very rich woman. Please send me a crate load. The dolly is going to be so lovely.
