So If you read my post yesterday, you probably realized that the prices for handmade dolls can get pretty expensive, it's no wonder since a lot of time goes into making these dolls and let's not forget the creativity... that has a price too! So do you have some sewing skill? Lot's of time? And more importantly, patience?One of my favorite DIY books is called Poupées, chiffons & cie by Sonia Lucano.
I picked this up a little while ago at Walmart and you can find it pretty much on any web bookstore like Amazon! It's in French, but if you have a little knowledge in sewing, then who cares if you can't read the instructions... The images are wonderful and inspiring, and the patterns are easy to follow visually.
|The face is hand embroidered and I colored the cheeks with a pink crayon.|
|The hair is made from felt and is removable... These two dolls are the same, the top one has a brown wig and this one has blonde hair!|
So it's still a work in progress, there are a few minor details I need to work out... If and whenever I make more, I'll be sure to pst some pictures!
