Shashi over at
back in March.
The inspiration was this piece of string.
It looks like a profile, right?
The challenge was to make a doll's head
with this loop of string for the pattern.
Here is mine.
It really did make a cute face.
All the entries are here.
They're all inventive and charming.
Some people even made a whole doll
not just a head.
Sherry Goshan was one of the judges!
I got second prize!
I was thrilled!
Sherry very generously donated
one of her e-mail doll patterns
as a prize and that will get its own post
in the near future.
Shashi, dear WONDERFUL Shashi
sent a goodie bag to the prizewinners.
Just see this!
Silks! Fabulous, exotic silks!
Gold embroidered braids!
Everything to delight a dollmaker's heart!
Thank you, thank you!
The doll here is one of Shashi's own she sent me last year
for the Pay it Forward project.
I love it and keep it on display in my sewing room.
If you want to make one,
Shashi has made the pattern
for Itsy Bitsy
Thank you so much
You're a star!
PS. If you're here for the
I'm still typing.
Have a cup of tea and a cake and I'll be ready.
