Ds is one of the 101 dalmations, I spent ages drawing spots on a rather large baby grow.

Dd1 is Dorothy, people kept asking where her ruby slippers were, but in the original book they were actually silver, apparently they changed them to ruby in the film to make the most of the new technicolor film process.

BadRoly Thu 07-Mar-13 12:56:49

Dd2 is Mildred Hubble - The Worst Witch
