Project for the week!

I can never make just one!  Friday I started by tracing the body parts on the fabric, stitched them up, cut out all the parts and began to turn them. Saturday I finished the turning, dipped them in coffee and hung them to dry and started to stuff!  Today I finished stuffing 21 bodies, 42 legs and 42 arms!  It's always such a good feeling to finish up one step but the excitement disappears quickly when you move onto the next and realize you now have 42 arms and legs to sew on the bodies!  LOL  I love my job!!!
 
Last evening I finished up attaching all the legs and arms!  Today has been slow going since I have a little helper here! The ice storm closed schools so my grandson is spending the day.  The dresses are under way and hope to have them finished by evening!

  3. The monotony does get to me sometimes and I feel like I will never get finished but when it happens! It's exciting! These will end up holding 14 different things and my goal is to have all 14 designs complete for a photo shoot!

  5. Haha! I remember that! When I was a dollmaker I always had grocery bags full of body parts...arms in one, legs in one, and bodies in another. Our older son would watch TV while turning the long skinny pieces--he had a knack for turning the difficult ones. He did that while I sewed chains of dresses. It takes so long, but suddenly they all come together...exciting! Great work...show a pic when they are done ---Jan
