Comfort Doll 7 finished


Doll 7 is finished - I never know what shape they will be, as I freehand them, until they are trued out. Not totally happy with this one, so I am (shack, horror!) drawing a pattern. The slightest change makes huge differences in the arms. Looking back, this shape has to be my favourite.

And I am almost out of faces. I draw a circle on cloth, my mother fills in the detail, and I colour them with watercolour pencils after they are sewn on. There are pictures of the process in the Comfort Doll set.

This is a closeup of the most recent one. The trick with watercolour pencils, to get intensity of colour (eg lips) is to slightly dampen the pencil.


Off to draft a pattern.
