My first few sewing projects (beside pillow cases!) were cloth dolls. It’s been a long time since I’ve made one, but I decided to give it another go. I was a tad heart-broken to cut up this beautiful dust-blue polka-dotted cotton, but there’s no point in leaving it without purpose, right? In the new year, I’m going to embark upon ‘Project De-Stash’ – no new fabric until I have used up the tens of kilos of fabric I have lying around!
This is Maude, who is made from the first doll pattern I created myself. She is wearing a pyjama shirt with a big muslin bow and rather voluminous bloomers. I hand-pleated blue trimming to the edge of the bloomers, hand-painted her hair and eyes and embroidered her nose. Quick and easy to make!
