A lot of people have seen my Original Floppit dolls. I developed the pattern with versatility in mind and boy has it been versatile!!
It has been sports characters and animals, fantasy critters and diy blanks, bald and fuzzy, big and small. If you haven't seen a Floppit, here is a picture of a design-it- yourself blank...

This pattern was originally designed on the back of a restaurant place mat, while my son and I waited for our food at a local restaurant. I liked the concept so much I stashed the place mat in my purse and used it for the concept to make silly faced rag dolls. I have made over 200 silly faces over the past 5 years.

And now I'm taking the pattern one step further...into art dolls! After tweaking the body and limbs I have made 5 art dolls featuring hand painted faces with acrylic and water color. The results are rather satisfying!
