Comfort Doll II progress
Comfort Doll #2 is progressing. I am experimenting with putting her "garland" (aka the pearls) on first. And I got reallllly pretentious, as I wanted very small tatting, like a diadem. So this was done with sewing cotton (and furry stuff at that!). It is really hard to use, and not the sort of thing to do as a passenger in a car. As it is so small you cannot see individual stitches.
But it seems to work.
I am embellishing this one a little less than the last as (and don't tell anyone), it is a quickie, so I can send one to Jo in New Zealand to distribute. Besides which - I have one I want to make that is, wait for it, not purple.
Pat, who initiated this project, was kind enough to leave a comment thanking me for blogging my progress to help the less experienced doll makers. Ummmm - Pat. You are more than kind. What you see above is my second doll - and the one before it was my first.
But I have been inspired by seeing the work of other Spirit Doll makers.
The progress of mine is on a set at Flickr. And dolls by others are in a Flickr Group.
