Pink isn’t just a color, it’s an attitude.
Karin is a special baby girl that almost didn’t make it. I’ve been working on this girl for months and I had never ever had so many issues with a baby doll as I had with her. It was such a long and almost painful delivery but as you can see, it was all worth it.
Karin was originally envisioned as an Asian baby. However, Asian eyes must be the hardest eyes ever to make, at least for me. So I settled for these slightly slanted eyes. I can tell she’s just a mixed baby. I must say I do love how her eyes turned out, but I am not giving up on making a fully awake Asian baby in the future. I just need to rest my mind a little.
Now let me tell you a little bit about Karin. Karin loves all things pink. Pink dresses, pink bonnets, pink shoes, pink blankets, pink toys, and her favorite animals are axolotls and pigs. Why? Because well, they are pink. Karin is an observer, she looks at everything so intensely as if she’s communicating with them telepathically. I sometimes think her pig talks back to her. She enjoys naps under a tree and rainy afternoons. We have had a couple of those lately and she can’t have enough of looking at the rain fall.
Karin is a 16 inch preemie size natural fibers baby doll. She fits into most preemie clothes. Her skin is Laib Yala dark peach color, her limbs and torso are firmly filled with clean wool. Her head is very floppy and needs to be supported at all times, just like a real newborn baby. Her legs are sewn directly to the torso with upholstery thread. They are very floppy as well as her arms. Her arms are sewn to her torso with both upholstery thread and polyester thread. Her face is firmly needle felted, soft sculpted, and hand embroidered with cotton embroidery floss. Karin’s hair is a black wild brushable mohair wig cap. It can be gently brushed. She’s fully soft sculpted, weighted in the torso, and she’s anatomically correct.
