and ooh she also made a video about little Tre singing Food around the corner ala chipmunk. I had a few laughs with it. the lighting is horrible but if you wanna take a looksy to the thing here it is:

And this is the picture selected to make Freddie's doll, (the face), we are still thinking about the outfit.......ideas here, we accept ideas.
I made a long sleeve shirt for Billie, a short sleeve for Tre and a sleeveless shirt for Mike, so, to start up the shirt, start by stitching the shoulders and then the sleeves just as explained on the procedure part on how to assemble the body. to close the shirts, just use velcro and glue it to the shirt that will be enough.
This is extremly easy, just saw the sides and make the hems.
I used cotton twill tape for Billie's belt and I attached it to the pants, for the studs you can either glue aluminum foil cutted into small squares, or use those metal aplliques which you can iron. same for Tre's belt, actually I made his belt of what I had left of cotton jersey I just glued it.
Join to pieces of fabric (you can make your own pattern drawing the feet of the boby pattern) stitch and that's all. Use cotton jersey, I made a little of crosstich embroider for Tre's shoes, and Billie's shoes are actually knitted, but to avoid too much work, just use remaining fabric you may have laying around.
Also made of remaining fabric, glue it and shape it as a tie, at the end when you've finished your doll put it around their necks and make the knott just as a regular tie.
