I Do Make Dolls Sometimes!

It says so in my description over there!  It just seems like an awfully long time since I've had a doll on my worktable.  I will have to think about changing that!

For starters, I went to a class last month.  Leta Benedict was in the area and contacted our doll club to see if we would be interested in a class.  Boy, were we!  It was a bit of a scramble to find a location and get everything together, but we can be a determined bunch!

So, meet Bastet:



This is Leta's sample doll.  We learned some pretty neat tricks from Leta about making faces and assembling the doll's pieces.  We always have fun when the group gets together - and Leta fit right in with us!




Here is my Bastet doll.  I chose to make her in browns and blues.  All of the fabric and most of the ribbon was from my stash.  How's that for stash busting?


Here is a picture of one of the other students' doll.  Joanne had some wonderful feathers and they do look great.  As of our club meeting this was the only other completed Bastet.  I can't wait to see how the others turned out!

These are wonderful! I love the soft looking hair on your Bastet. ^-^
