I also spent 6 years making cloth dolls, not Raggedy Ann types, more soft sculptural pieces than play pieces and took part in many wonderful workshops with both talented Aussie teachers as well as overseas teachers. Annie Hesse being one of them (US)! So below are a couple of pictures of my most "fibre-licious" piece of work in my whole 6 years of doll making. It stands 3 feet tall, took around 3 days to make, has 10 balls of wool in the skirt, the beaded face took 8 hours alone to do (it's 3 inches across). Annie Hesse was also the pattern designer for the other 3ft tall Ancestor dolls that were in a previous post here. Apologies for the shocking pics, these were done on a dodgy camera before I got my new digital.
EDIT: Whoops, just realised I'm in Group 2 on Aussie Dares (How Dare You Blog) so didn't need to post to this fibre challenge....oh well....3 cheers for a dufus moment!!! lol
Here's the raffle atc for today's Microscope Slide atc class at Scraptivate that I'm doing. Though I may change my mind and either do another one, or, give one of the other previous ones away as I sort of like this one. ;--) Good ol' German Scrap embosses just beautifully, this fabulous colour is Judikins Rustiques Weathered Iron.
