I'm back from vacation. I miss the tranquility already but I'm excited to be back home where I can talk about dolls.
I'm engaged in a doll project with my doll club, Dollerious Doll Makers of Washington- and it's based on a pattern called Penny Doll. The pattern is made by a cloth doll artist named Claire. The pattern is really quite interesting.
The doll is jointed together with buttons and is very different than anything I have ever made before. The feet are like high heel shoes.
I really like the way the hands are designed, too. Usually I take great pains to make 5 individual fingers, thinking that the hands look more realistic that way. I never saw them made in this manner, but I like it a lot.HANDsome hands!
Here's what the torso looks like before the legs and lower part of the arms were attached.
