SFM Cloth Dolls with Attitude! NZ

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Another fruitful evening with the OCDC group on Tuesday.  Here is Joanne's Santa, posing with Julie's High Octave Hester.  Seems these two are related - hopefully!  Same designer at least!

Some art dolls in the making here, by Judy!  These dolls are fun and Judy had good ideas about them.  Hope she brings them next week!  I'm dying to see what they will look like now!

Julie has been making these cute wee mermaids!  Her daughter has also had a go at drawing the faces - pretty accurately too!  She's only 8!

Joanne has been making this doll for a wee while now.  Jo likes to have many things on the go at once and does a bit on each one.  It's amazing how they all come together!
I've been making an Aboriginal doll called Kyeema, meaning 'of the dawn'. It's an online class with Marilyn Halcomb and I am loving it! It's similar but different to what I make and already I have learned some new techniques!
 I have enjoyed making a dark skinned doll and this cotton lycra fabric is wonderful to work with!
Get a load of those teeth and that profile!  It's so cool!

Hello Sharon

Great and original work, as always
But, please, with what material is the teeth made of? how is it attached to a fabric?
Thanks a lot
cheers
