Hello, hello, Internet~Land. I hope your holiday season is going well. We had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year. This past year has been a fantastic ride, and I wanted to thank you for all the nice comments, emails, and encouragement. I hope my little site has been a help and encouragement to you. For this last post of 2019, I am adding a link to my latest BJD box opening video along with a new Basic Pattern Set for the new girl in the video. I also have a diagram showing how I wire my BJDs to give them better stability and poseability (probably not a real word). The picture will show the latest change I’ve added when wiring a doll with a three part torso. I have a few dolls that were still wanting to bend and kick at the waist, so I tried adding a new wire (shown in green). The wires for the arms and legs are doubled, but this new torso wire is not. I kept it as a single wire, since the hip/leg channels were already pretty crowded with the first wire and elastic. So far, even this thinner addition has been helpful for my dolls to stay upright a little easier. As always, the pattern shown & linked here will also be added to the Free Stuff page (for easy viewing) and to the Ready To Print page for easy PDF access once this post moves into the Archives. Here’s wishing you the very, very BEST for 2020 ~ Happy New Year!
