I have your stuff already to send & no stamps my husband usually gets them, but this time he didn't. So it will probably be Mon. when I send.  I found some books I have already had & it's about these Art Dolls, I'm so glad I found them. One is "Designing the Doll" by Susanna Oroyan, "Creative Cloth Doll Making" by Patti Medaris Culea & a 3rd one "Crafting Cloth Dolls" by Miriam Christensen Gourley. Some have patterns to use & it also shows how to make your own patterns & different ways to make them move with joints & a lot of other things. I think I'll be making more of these.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend everyone! Wink

I know those three books and they're great. I highly recommend also a new one called "we make dolls", very fun.

I mailed out my surprise swap this morning so I'm ready to make a physical start today!
Eeeep!

I have one by Susan Oroyan. Please don't feel pressured to send me stuff, because we have the same tastes, and we are going in a similar direction. LOL, The only supplies I may have to get would be some fabric paint, but I may have that already too. I do have the messiest craft space, but can work on it tomorrow. Oh, question, does it have to look human?

Ok that's fine. Isn't she great! No I guess it doesn't have to be human especially after seeing some of these Art Dolls in these books. Do what ever you want. "Lovesclutter"

"Susanab" I'll have to look that one up! These books are great!  I have use some things in them to make my Poppets & it really help! I'm glad I found them.

I am following but adapting a doll I saw in "Stuffed" magazine (from Somerset, if you don't know about it) and I think I can make the doll my own, or Ashley's, with a few signature things that I use/add to all the dolls I make.

On another note, I spent about 3 hours last night making little monsters from some of the decorator fabric I was gifted. I cut out and embellished the faces. Tomorrow I will sew and stuff and then you can all have a look.

Happy Labor Day weekend all - it's very quiet here in San Francisco. Foggy and quiet.

I woke up yesterday super sick and I had to call in to work today. Sad So no progress for me yet. I planned to send out my stuff yesterday too but couldn't. Hopefully this goes away real soon. I hate missing work and missing out on craft time!

Well, even though I haven't started my doll.  I have started gathering.  I have an idea, though I've never done it before, and can't find a pattern I like....I think I may just be winging it.  I'm planning on tossing at least 3 of my partners themes into one doll.  It could end up pretty interesting if it all works out. 

Was at a loss for inspiration until I spent about 5 hours looking through pinterest.....lol

OOOOH! Now I'm all excited! I, too, spent quite a bit of time on pinterest and have your dolly all sketched out. Just a matter of getting more than twenty minutes to myself...you may not get your doll til Christmas Grin
