A finish......

I haven't posted here in quite awhile as I seem to be on Facebook all the time.

I took yet another online course with Angela Jarecki called "Song of Hope".  My last online course I think unless some amazing class comes along. When I comsider the exchange between Canadian and USD is gets to be an expensive hobby.

It's been awhile since I made a doll....September 2015!!!!!  

I had a bit of trouble doing the head for this doll. So I cheated and used the head from her doll Abundance. Much easier. I also had to take off the first face I made and start again. You can do that as the skin over face technique is pretty forgiving. You just wet the face and pull off the skin and then redo. Sounds gross doesn't it?

Anyway....I finished my doll. I'm pretty pleased with her as I was very rusty at drawing faces. The costuming was really fun to do as well. I was lucky in that I had so many matching fabrics that I could mix and match. 

You can see the seam under her skin in this pic but in person it doesn't show at all.
I doesn't show at all  if the pic is fuzzy...........:)

Take care :)

Doll Wig Tutorial Part 1 and 2

I thought these were interesting videos. I make cloth doll but I think that the method shown is something I'd like to try. I watched the second video with a great deal of interest. How she handles the middle part is really very cool :)
