Dolly making

Wow, look at Material Obsession's "Diamond Dollies".

They are amazing, and with such clever use of printed fabrics fussy cut to simulate the hair part of the dollies.

I spent the day today working on my own larger dollies, wall hanging size. Not as successfully as the ones in the link above, but I did have fun. I particularly enjoyed working with curved seams for the legs - curvaceous are my dollie's legs!

The dollies that I worked on today.


A curvy dolly.

A dolly in a tempest.
