Well yesterday I spent all day cooking meals, Enough for us for two days. Now with all that under my belt I can go to my sewing room and play!!
I have 3 projects going and want to share them .
#1: Pattern by Plain Old Rag Doll e-pattern by JDConwell Folkart Dolls
I never have been one to like journaling, I sat down with a nice cup of hot pomegranate tea.
and took time to REALLY look in to me, and , Starting writing what I REALLY wanted to create, I just kept seeing what I call "YesterYear " type dolls
I will be making more and more of this Vintage YeasterYear Type Dolls, Made my mind up these are what I have been wanting to create for so long, I just love them, and when I found Jan's e-pattern I was like a kid at Christmas and decided right then to take the plunge!
I can create with much love Rag Baby's like the pattern above, I have done a lot of research about the beloved Rag Babies and the thing the do for me is the transport me back in time.
I love 1800's early 19 century.
I know I can not make Izannah Walker style dolls. Though I dearly love them, Read about their history a lot, I look at the doll artists who do create them and proudly own one who was created by Jackie Eberley Nichols ,Picture of the Izannah Doll below was created by:Jackie Eberley Nichols https://www.pinterest.com/pin/389279961513778222/
#2: I am also in a challenge for Cloth Doll Artistry Studio
The house template is only 5 inches ,I decided to create a Mug Rug or Hot Pad with the design making it my own,which is the fun part. Just can't make up my mind which it will be, I am working on it today, Cause the challenge is only one week long before it is due.
Why am I doing a Challenge??? That is what I was asking my self, Having TWO dolls in the works. I am doing the challenge because it is different, Makes me be more creative, and also pushed me to get going a bit faster,Yet with out any stress. and also it is a great way to make friends and talk about what we are all creating .SO on ward and for ward to the New Year 2017 !
Which is stuffed and ready for her face and hair and to be dressed !
Break is over now back to my fun day "Sewing Creating"
