Mimi’s Christmas Sale Continues – Mimi’s Mermaid – Elf Named Stretch

We got the sale up late, and Jim’s not able to do as much so It’s going to have to stay up until he has time and energy to redo the website again because the blog needs to get done first.

The second part of the An Elf Named Stretch was published in the March 2011 issue of Soft Dolls & Animals magazine. I submitted both how to needle model his chest and how to make his clothes. They chose only to run the clothes, so I’m waiting to hear back from them if they are going to do the needle modelling section, or if I can post it on the web site. We’ll put the clothing patterns up on the web site as soon as we can so you can download them for printing on one side of the paper.

We are currently working on two DVDs. The first is Mimi’s Modular Mermaid that I started when Cassi was 7 has developed quite a bit now that she is thirteen.  The mermaid is posable (but each pose is separate, not movable) with both articulated arms with wired hands that can hold things, and display arms and hands that have extra fin surface for decoration. She can sit, lie on her stomach with her arms up or down and her tail over her head. There are four different tails and two sets of flukes so you can get lots of variations. Here’s some pictures:

There are also wall mounted variations with gigantic tail flukes and arm and pectoral fins.

Sitting Blue Mermaid

David's Blue Mermaid

Orange Mermaid

The second DVD will be Mimi’s Handbook of Dollmaking Techniques . It will include videos or animations of everything on the website, and dozens of new techniques collected from everywhere.

Incidentally, if you sign up for an email subscription using the button on the bottom right of the screen, we’ll tell you by email every time something new is posted.

  1. We’ll be presenting articles and perhaps video clips as we do the Mermaid. You’ll get to see most of the process from the production side.

    Each minute of video that you see takes 3-10 hours of setup and editing. If we didn’t do that, you wouldn’t be able to stay awake or afford the number of discs that it would take.

    Because we have a lot of other new stuff on our agenda, I can’t tell you yet what the schedule is going to be.

    Happy Dolling,
    Mimi

  2. Hi, Mimi
    I have a really big dolling problem and I know only you can help. Is there a way to contact you for advice and troubleshooting?
    I am really frustrated!
    But the dolling continues….
    Hope to hear from You
    Nina
