The Dolly got Clothes
Don't worry, she wasn't bare for long! I've made her some clothes.......cut freehand from felt, guessing what might work and to be honest I am quite happy with the way they turned out! Oh and she got a bow on her head because I wasn't very good at sewing up the stuffing hole!
During the construction process and seeking inspiration, I came across a number of Flickr sites and blogs where there are some amazing hand crafted dolls... check out the Handmade Original Dolls Group, the Handmade One-of-a-Kind Cloth Dolls, Mimi Kirchner's blog simply entitled Doll and my personal favourite Matilde Belrorega...... there are some wonderfully talented ladies out there....oh and since the film is due out here this weekend try a little Coraline crafting over at Nani Kora and the associated swaps Flickr Site - Coraline Box Swap.
