I made these dolls for my friends from college.  Each doll is based on their personality and has clothes made to match their taste.  They call them their voodoo dolls.  Although, they're really not that scary, just scarily cute.

That is so cool! I bet they loved them.

What are they made of (the exterior)?

I made them out of muslin.  And it was before I inherited my mom's sewing machine so they are all totally hand Swen.  I'm still learning how to use my machine so my hand sewing still looks better than my machine stitching but hopefully that will change soon.

I also think I'd like to learn to do the faces a bit differently.  Maybe I'll try to draw on the eyes or something next time and do a little face sculpturing.


I love your sock dolls they look so cute!

Wow, fantastic. I bet socks are much easier to sew than muslin... I am hopeless with a needle but just managed with the sock dolls. The sock doll book I used gave some tips on sculpting facial features, many of which required trial and error from me. I think you have some natural talent!
