EVER WONDER HOW THEY MAKE DOLLS?

 Julie’s Doll Class was in session Thursday when I visited the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above some of the women are hard at work on their dolls. It always amazes me how they make these small dolls look so awesome.

 This doll is getting her back stitched.  I admire the patience these women have in creating something so small and so beautiful.

 This is a doll’s hatbox.  Isn't it cute?  I never had anything like this for my dolls when I was a child.

This doll is staying put in her little coffee mug while the creator continues making her parts.

These dolls are drying. They look like they have a coat of gesso on them. If you get a chance, take one of Julie’s doll making classes. She will make you look very professional as her creations are out of this world.  Watch for her next class session in an upcoming newsletter, to be out soon.

Have you visited Stash Manicure lately? Take a look here and you will notice the new banner and that one of my hearts is on it. I am so honored to have my heart chosen as part of the banner and expecially to be among such talented people.  While there, scroll down to read about who is participating in the banner this month.

Speaking of Stash Manicure, Karen Maxwell has a tutorial on Stash Manicure for a dot-dot-dash quilt. See it here.

A special thank you to all who responded to the post about what inspires you. I’m sure Wayne will be able to use some of your ideas for that new book he is writing.


Stay Positive!
