This doll is based on Kaylee, which itself is named for one of my nieces. I have one niece who is totally hooked on paper dolls already and I love it, naturally! Each of these toddler dolls borrows elements from previous ones for the sake of speed, but in each set I try to create at least one new wardrobe piece. In this case, I created 3. I believe in flexibility & efficiency. I'm not going to draw a new pair of pants for each of these dolls when I can just recolor one set!
Also on the news front, I just found out that Barnes and Noble's online store is carrying a few of my paper dolls books!! There's another Julie Matthews represented there as well, and I wish her much success! That's part of the reason why I try to sign my work with my maiden name as well. I knew there was at least one more Julie Matthews out there (a musician).
Anyway, check out the new doll. Check out the paper doll books at B&N (and here -- I have links to the books here, too, which I need to update....) Enjoy the new toddler doll!
