A young friend came for a sewing lesson a couple weeks ago. While she was here, she noticed a doll standing on my desk and asked about her. She wanted to see more dolls so we happily traipsed up to my third floor. We had a great time looking at my little family of cloth dolls. Some were dolls I had made, and some had been purchased. When we were done, I told her that her grandmother had 3 more dolls I had made stored in her attic. (Actually it was 4, but I'd forgotten about one)!
A week later when I went to a birthday party, there were the dolls, down from the attic!
The fellow in the green overalls is a Hobbit, a character from J.R. R. Tolkein's book, The Hobbit. Check out his feet! Lucky fellow, he dressed in the amazing and colorful fabrics printed by Marblehead Handprints! There is more about him my post on February 16, 2014. All these dolls were made with patterns I designed.
It was fun to see these three again, now loved by a new generation of children!
