doll parts and beautiful fabrics

This weekend the south part of Holland is going mad, it's "Carnaval"! Not for me though..I have celebrated enough of that when I was younger. This year I'll go see the parade and then go home again to work on this little girl.
Doll inspired me into making another cloth doll.
I'm planning on embroider her face with some floss and use cotton buttons to sew the arms and legs on the doll's body.

Also last week I recieved an unexpected lovely suprise true the mail. These most beautiful fabrics...a gift for me from Mary. Thank you so much Mary, I feel overwhelmed by your generous geste!

Hoi Corry! Leuk die stofjes en je pop wordt natuurlijk helemaal leuk! Daar zal je kleindochter wel blij mee zijn! Ik ben benieuwd naar haar gezichtje!

Corry, I can tell your new doll is going to be a beauty. I know you'll make something beautiful with your new fabrics from Mary too. I can't wait to see both.

i can completely relate...i'm also at that stage in my life where, i'd rather be nesting at home and creating rather than going out in the masses..."been there done that". can't wait to see your finished doll also. xx

Pretty fabrics, too!!

Wat een leuke pop wordt dat! Ik heb hier ook nog een oud boek liggen met patronen voor lappenpoppen, maar heb er nog steeds niets uit gemaakt. Maar dat komt vast nog weleens! En leuke stofjes, veel plezier ermee!

I love doll's hair! So pretty!

Anne Marie said...

I really like her "heidi" hair...

Janet said...

Your doll is SO cute!! I just love the hair and the hair ribbons :0) I can't wait to see her when she's finished. I like your idea to attach the arms and legs with buttons.
