Looking Into The Future
After all the frustrations and setbacks I've had with the process of finding a manufacturer of sleep eyes for dolls, I am immensely pleased to announce I have procured replacement stationary eyes! These eyes will work for dolls with fixed, or non-moving, eyes, such as the Wellie Wishers dolls by American Girl. Within the next month I expect to have these eyes available in several colors. I should have the basic three colors, blue, brown, and green, for sale as early as the weekend! As with all my eyes, these come with a tutorial link so you can see exactly how to replace them.
Like all American Girl dolls, Wellie Wishers have unique custom-made eyes that aren't available outside the American Girl hospitals or factories. My eyes fit the Wellie Wishers but have a different look than the originals. They make the face look more alert and bright-eyed. You can also use these eyes for reborn dolls and any other fixed-eyed dolls with a 16mm eye size. I hope you will check my shops for these within the next few days (link from the Home page).
I am so thrilled to take this step into the future! It's just the beginning of what I hope will someday be a complete line of Atelier Mandaline doll making supplies, dolls and toys, and fashions!
