Friday night doll making

I broke out the sewing machine today! The sewing machine and I have an "on-again-off-again" kind of relationship :)
I thought I'd make 3 dolls today. Here they are on my ironing board before I finished stuffing and sewing them:



Those little arms and legs of theirs put me through my paces! It is always a lesson in patience when I sew LOL!
Here they are chilling out (minus faces!) with Frida on my bookshelf:



I think I will wait until tomorrow to finish with painting their faces.
Have a great Friday night!
Talk to you tomorrow~
xoxo

They are adorable - well done, I dont think I would have the patience with the little legs and arms (but then, I wont know til I try lol) - cheers Val

The little legs and arms are easy to sew and also easy to turn if you use a straw and a stick. Put the straw into the unturned leg/arm then on the other side push a stick (smaller than the straw size) and just push it thru...piece of cake!
Have a great weekend.

Wonderful....can't wait to see what they turn into. They're kind of like half-formed little beings sitting there waiting for a telephone call!

Looks like I'm not the only one excited about seeing the dollies when they're all finished! Now, I'm trying to remember if you've already made a cloth doll tutorial video... :)
