Sweet 16 to go....


Sixteen little bodies cut out this afternoon -- now a short time at the sewing machine to stitch them -- then turn, stuff and close and then the fun begins -- adding embellishment to this fun pieces. there is no real rush for these -- it is just nice to have something like this ready to go.

OCTOBER 9, 2008

Eight of the sixteen stitched, stuffed and ready for embellishment. When finished, most of the sixteen will go to the Comfort Doll Program.

Jackie, I like the fabric and the form....I like having forms on hand too. Reminds me I have some comfort dolls that need to be finished and sent on their way...hehehe!

Are these for a special project, jackie or just back-up for the beaded doll group?

Carol ~ have to have some small project going all the time. Sometimes the larger beaded projects are too much to look at even -- but these little pieces keep me going and in no time I am ready to tackle the larger pieces.

Noel & Lisa thanks, I've found these little dolls are very well liked and make wonderful gifts. I try to keep photos of them on my blog or in my notebook because they don't stay around too long.

LB ~ yep, I do stay busy -- but oh, goodness, very few could keep up with you. Your patience is amazing -- and your pieces so well researched and executed so beautifully.

BB -- same to you -- I loved your Basho series -- and enjoyed following the travels in the book.
I will probably use some of these dolls for the Doll Project -- already have a few Dotee Dolls made to go too.

Hello Jackie, I am returning the visit, and WOW, I am so impressed...HOW MANY dolls bodies, good grief it would take me for ever to get them done. I have only just discovered these little people through Noel. She is helping me with them as I haven't a clue what I am doing, so I now have another person to guide me through pictures on your Blog. It is lovely. :-)
