An Introduction...

Welcome to my new blogspot...and to start, a little about my journey here...

I have a background in costume design and I have been making dolls for many years. My recent creations have been cloth dolls inspired by antique dolls and my family history (another of my favourite pastimes). I also love creating anything with fabric and I'm enjoying experimenting with different styles and designing unique items.

In this blog I will share doll info, tips and tricks that I have learnt over the years and also pics and even a few patterns, so please check back often to see what's new....

Queen Anne Cloth Doll

This is my first 'Queen Anne' design. She is made from calico, then stained and painted with needle felted pure alpaca hair. (She also has the most fabulous painted gold boots with laces!!). Her dress is made from vintage cotton prints in the traditional two layers (bodice top over underskirt) with split front, laced with ribbon and trimmed with vintage lace. Check out my FREE PATTERNS for a Queen Anne face to trace for your dolls.
