up until recently my answer would be one that's common to dollmakers and some other crafters: medical forceps for turning arms, legs and other parts right-side out. but now my favorite tool is my honda.
but i love the results.... pretty, right? real pretty!
i made this doll for spookypooky in craftster's art doll swap. she has a very deep love of disney and will probably be working there in the future. i used a pattern that she also likes and changed it to be this girlmouse.
and her necklace is a bottlecap on a piece of twine. i just think that this really adds the touch. i have 200 soda caps coming very soon--i thought maybe i should have some non-alc on hand. plus it's more to play with.
