Meet Baby #90 KATIE BUG
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
painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.
Her incredibly soft chocolate brown Delta Dawn
mohair was micro-rooted by hand,
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 long 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
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
Moist looking lips, a hint
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.
