9” tall, all cloth stand-alone doll made with materials at hand (scraps of fabric). Students learn the basics of template use for sewing pattern pieces and assembly using simple armature for the arms/hands; simple face and body needle sculpture that looks way more complicated than it is; and a bit of bead work as a finishing touch.
I am excited to bring this class to you through the Art Connection Summit!
I create as an expression of my soul rather than from my
I've been making dolls and crating my own patterns since the 1980's when my children were young. At First, I made dolls from commercial patterns that were easy and safe for my children to play with. But it wasn't too long before I wanted to create my own dolls and turned to the sketches I had drawn for my inspiration. Out of this, I got referrals to make dolls for therapists to use with children who suffered trauma and much later I made simpler dolls to sell in local craft and fabric shops.
My dolls patterns are designed and written with the beginning doll maker in mind. My patterns have been identified by some of my peers as the standard for teaching the basics about doll construction for the beginner doll maker.
