There are Bodies!

Another lovely day at Art and Stitch on Saturday and all the ladies managed to make bodies for their dolls.


There was much laughter as the various merits of big boobs vs saggy boobs were discussed... with quite a bit of squeezing and feeling going on in the process. Combined with cries such as "my arm's just fallen off", anyone coming in the shop must have wondered what on earth we were doing.


As well as bodies several of the ladies managed limbs as well and already there are some glorious characters emerging.



I think the one below looks like a rather scary aerobics teacher in her multi coloured leotard.


And I think it's best not to speculate on the profession of this young lady... who is looking very "come hither".


Of course now the fun starts when the dolls can be embellished and decorated, which the ladies will finish at home. A bit sad for me as I don't get to see the dolls complete but I did get a sneak preview of some of the accessories. Pixie boots for the blue doll in the third photo. (Another Annette Emms pattern)


Complete with a matching tiara... very pretty!


And if you fancy making a Diva Doll, I'll be teaching the same class at the  Embroiderer's Guild Eastern Region Spring residential weekend in Hoddesdon in March 2012, and at Bee Crafty in Huntingdon June 2012.

  12. I think my favourite is the one with the 'come hither' looks. I wish I had a slender body and long legs like that... but they are all fabulous. Wish I'd been a fly on the wall when you were all having that saggy boobs conversation... xx

  13. I am with Lesley and love Ms "Come Hither"......... It must be great for you and your students to watch each doll's character slowly come to life.

  15. The dolls look fabulous. All the ladies had a great time and seem to have created wonderful characters for their dolls. I can't wait to see them finished with all their accessories. The tiara you've made is lovely. Maybe you should be designing for Barbie, i'm sure she'd look better in a Ferrari original!
