2peas in a pod - Baby tutorial

First of all I apologize that I don't have really step-by-step instruction as I usually do.
Unfortunately at the time I made the babies I was really in a hurry and I didn't have the time to take so many pictures. But I'll try to give a good description and if you need more help, just ask!

1. Roll a piece of gumpaste in oblong shape.

2. Pinch slightly between your fingers 1/3 of the piece ( this is going to be the head) and try to make it as round as possible without detaching it from the body!

3. With a sharp knife cut in the middle of the bottom third of the oblong piece ( this is going to be the legs part)

4. Pinch 2 pieces ( one on each side of the body)just under the " head" part and stretch them a little bit. These are going to be the hands.

By this time your piece should look something like that:

5. Add details- fingers, toes, knees, elbows, belly/button, face ( cheeks, nose) etc,

6. Add eyes, eyelashes, eyebrows, hair ( bows if it's a girl).

7. Add just a smidgen of pink flower dust on the cheeks and body, colored booties, then sprinkle with pearl dust on top.
