Dolls and More Dolls

>> Sunday, December 31, 2006

I was cleaning out some of my seldom-used craft supplies (buried deep in Jo's closet) when I came across a big tub of doll parts. Years ago I was working at Davis-Kidd Booksellers when this great book arrived. Anatomy of a Doll. A coworker bought it for me on the condition that I would make a doll for her. I did (and of course I didn't take a picture) and the next doll I made was for me. Here she is.

I especially love her beaded hair. I made a bunch of dolls, including a few from Julie McCullough patterns, but I really wanted to make something that was looser, more poseable. This is what I came up with.

My favorites are the androgynous puffy pants people with macrame hair, but I also made a few girl fairies

and some sleepytime fairies.

All of them are totally poseable, with wire arms and legs and bodies. They can even climb trees!

I loved them and, for some reason, I made up a ton of parts and clothing pieces. Now that I've found said tub o' parts, this is how I spend my evenings while watching TV. Fun!
