SFM Cloth Dolls with Attitude! NZ

Saturday, October 13, 2012

I've signed up for Colleen Babcocks Mystery Doll Pattern - which seems to have taken off into the worlds biggest cloth doll class!  I think she'll hardly have tiome to do anything for weeks while she answers all her emails!  And here's me thinking I might hold a mystery doll Online class...........I'll have to think about that one.  It's a pretty massive undertaking.

Anyway, here's my effort at making the delicious little head. Lovely skull shape and the neck looks promising, but not on yet. I think I'm way behind the others.

The fabric is Hoffman Watercolour Batik and lovely to work with and gives the skin an iteresting tone.

 I've never done the eyelids like this before either and what I found most interesting was following someone else's process after doing my own thing for so long!  Always something new to learn as a dollmaker and Colleen knows her craft so well!

Your doll's head looks amazing. I'm pleased to know you are enjoying the class so much and have enjoyed trying someone else's technique. I really like doing that sometimes - it is so refreshing. Although, as you say, not much time to do that right now. I think however, that many people are really getting into making their dolls now and so the questions have slowed down a bit. It's good to know people are enjoying the challenge of making the mystery pattern.
