Meet Baby #90
born December 25, 2015
5 lbs.    19" long

 Katie Bug is a custom ordered baby. She lives in Alabama, USA.
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, she is a one-of-a-kind creation.

Katie Bug was lovingly created from the now sold out Melody Hess "Addy" sculpt.
Multiple layers of Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied,
then each layer was baked to ensure that her baby skin
will retain its beautiful detail forever.

Subtle veins, lightly mottled newborn skin, blushing and tiny capillaries
were painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.

Her incredibly soft chocolate brown Delta Dawn
mohair was micro-rooted by hand,

one or two strands at a time, with a fine gauge needle,
sealed from inside with waterproof glue, then cut and styled.

Katie Bug was given individually mouth-blown newborn blue
German glass eyes, her l
ong dark brown lashes were hand-applied
and her 3-dimensional eyebrows were painted on
with a superfine brush
to give them a fine, baby-soft appearance.

Her little limbs, head, and jointed doe suede body are weighted
with tiny glass beads and filled with silky soft 100% premium polyester
fiberfill and baby powder wafers, to give her the look, feel,
and sweet smell of a newborn.

Moist looking lips, a hint of baby tears and tiny manicured
fingernails and toenails add to the realism of this little girl.

Her nose has been opened, shaded, and backed with purple felt,
to give the appearance of "breathing". She has a magnet behind
her mouth so she can take a modified magnetic pacifier.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Katie Bug went home with

a signed birth certificate, a Heartstrings Nursery COA,
a handmade ID bracelet,
and her favorite little stuffed doll,
as well as an extensive layette and a whole lot of extras.
