Christmas Birds

I'm making small Christmas birds to sell at the Indy Cloth Dollmakers 12th Annual Show and Sale. The show will be at the Irvington branch library on Nov 22nd from 10AM till 5PM. In addition to sale items, there will be a display of challange creations. This year's theme is Fae Folk in their Habitat.

Doll Update

She's coming along! Just have to sew on a few more embellishments and make her hair. This is a sneak peek from the back. Come back to see her from the front in 3 or 4 days.

I used a pattern and ideas from Jan Horrox's book, Introduction to Making Cloth Dolls.

Bird * Bag * Doll * Creations

Another baby bird stitched up last week. I did some free motion quilting on the fabric before cutting out the parts.

I also finished up the last bag (of this set) to be sold at Gallery 116. This one is made from some lovely pear fabric that I found at the thrift store.

This will be my first completed doll - hopefully I can finish her up before my doll club meeting next Saturday!
