Last night I sewed the doll body parts of the doll I cut out last week from the book “The Cloth Doll” and started stuffing as indicated by the directions. I’m very pleased with it so far. I started late last night around 8:00 p.m.
Watched the news and some of the political conversations, then went outside to put on the new steering wheel cover I crocheted for my car.
After a while I said, let’s get this doll sewn and see how it will look. Actually, I’m finding that putting together the body is a bit intense. The doll on the cover of this issue is a beautiful clown doll. For anyone that collects the books, its; The Cloth Doll, The Voice of Cloth Dollmaking Worldwide”, Vol. 14, No. 4. The doll body I’m using is Peaches & Cream by Diana Baumbauer. I don’t have the fabric she used, but I have a good fabric. I won’t be duplicating the cover doll, I am just using the body pattern to create my own doll in the end.
I know nothing about face sculpture, but I will give it a try. All I hope for is a better looking doll than I have so far, adding new skills to my new found craft. I’m very excited and hope to make a lovely doll.
This issue has an article “Beginning Soft Sculpture with Lisa Lichtenfels”. I believe I stated that in another thread here, but I will be learning a lot with the making of this doll. I will not be making the clown outfit the cover doll is wearing, I will be creating a new outfit for this doll as she speaks to me. giggle…….he he…wish me luck!
