Sorry about lack of recent blog updates. The Easter weekend rather got in the way and it has been a hectic week at work this week. But I have not been completely idle on the fabric front.
It was lovely to have Emily to stay last week. Together, we had a very busy couple of days making cloth dolls based on a pattern by Sharon Mitchell (from New Zealand) who has a fascinating blog at http://sfmclothdollswithattitude.blogspot.com/
The finished dolls stand about 11 inches tall. Emily turned the dolls fingers with the tools she had for Christmas and I stitched the bodies and then make the clothes.
A great tip was to use Freezer Paper and to stitch around the paper and then cut out.
