What can be more fun than creating with your hands and making pocket money? My love of making dolls started out wanting to buy a primitive doll from a gift shop at the Columbia, MD mall. What? $45 for a small tea stained primitive doll?
I knew how to sew as I used to make my own clothes and those of my son and departed first husband so made one. This wasn't the first doll just one which is rather photogenic.
Was truly into this doll making so began taking classes to learn more. Took a class from eleanor peace bailey (she spells her name in lower case) where I learned how to make her fun dolls. Many were sold and this is the only one left which still hangs in my sewing room. A very fond memory of a fun teacher so think she is a keeper. The male form to the left is an unfinished doll which will probably remain a UFO.
Many didn't but I did manage to salvage two favorites which I have in the living room.
Wow, I've run out of steam and had planned to talk about rug hooking but guess that is a throwback for another day. Sorry to disappoint those rug hookers out there but you can always scroll downward to see what has been posted previously.
