Hello. I do declare that I have the best readers ever. Look what arrived in the post yesterday, a fantastic goody bag containing felt, wool, and beads in luscious colours. J you are so very kind, you didn't want these so you passed them on to me, and I am so chuffin chuffed. It's like Christmas and birthdays rolled into one. I am very lucky, thank you.Hi Ilona x please can you post a bit more detail about stitching the dollies face? Many thanks x
My faces are not perfect. This is the one I am making at the moment, I have put some eye shadow on it, a felt tip pen. Check first on a piece of spare fabric, some inks bleed into the fabric. My glitter pens don't bleed. The blue eyes are felt with black stitching in the centre.
on Pinterest, scroll down for more.
Just a quick note on assembling the dollies. There is a slight error in the video. When you have stitched the legs to the bottom of the dress and sewn up the sides, and stuffed the dress, you then add the arms with hand stitching.
I had a lovely walk with Bailey poodle this morning. Haven't been to the fishing ponds for ages. It's all lovely and tidy, grass mowed, fences erected, litter bins, wild hedges cut back, and swans with seven babies paddling around. Bailey hasn't been down there at all, so he was a bit confused, kept stopping to look around, couldn't work out where he was.
Time for lunch, it's going to be a nice day here, whooopeee. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
