I was invited to attend the 3D doll club's October meeting the day I returned all the dolls they generously loaned to me for the Pine Bush quilt show. It was a day of show and tell, sharing and creativity. Here are some dolls that were created by the 3D members.
This doll was the result of the hanger doll challenge offered at Day of Dolls.
I've always enjoyed creating things since I was a little girl. While my brother and sisters were out learning to ride bikes I would sit on a couch for hours making paper dolls and storing them in an envelope I stapled together out of construction paper. My first experience sewing was inspired by a book I ordered from a fundraiser in elementary school. With it's simple projects to sew, I chose to make an apron. My mother gave me an old garment to use for material. I sewed a square together forgetting to leave a small opening to turn it. I cheesed out and left it like that and attached a grosgrain ribbon on the edge for ties. I was so proud of that moment, ha ha. I've come a long way since then and my passion for cloth and creating continues. I enjoy making cloth dolls and like to dabble with whatever strikes my fancy. It's a journey.
