The Sewing Bee Week 3
Take pictures and write a post on your blog (linking HERE to the Sewing Bee) of what it is that you are currently working on in your sewing space… whether it be hand or machine stitching.
Like minded chicas…the sharing of patterns and progress of sewing.
To inspire ourselves to keep stitching.
What could be better than that?
Leave a link below in the comments to share your project with the rest of us!
My Sewing Bee…
On the hoop/ sewing table~ Wanna-be Waldorf dolls.
Pattern~ My own creations.
Making dolls is nothing new to me. I have Heather and Bernadette and their getting me involved with editing for Rhythm of The Home… to thank for that.
Oooooh those damn Waldorfians….they’re contagious, didn’t you know?
I remember the first time that I saw a Waldorf Doll.
I think my smile spread from ear to ear.
And I don’t mean those snore-bag dolls without the faces. I am talking about those happy adorable smiley babies that make you just want to squeal.
Yea, those ones.
And then a few months ago I developed my Waldorf baby pattern which is in the store. I have been figuring out my own method to the madness that is Waldorf Doll making. It is an evolving process, and I am quite happy with the little lovelies that have found their way out of my sewing room.
With each one that I have made I have gotten a little bit better at making the certain aspects of the doll that make it Waldorf. My dolls are very much NOT the traditional style. But there are deliberate little bits and pieces of the tradition intermixed in each.
And I did that on purpose….because I happen to adore the little faces and heads of those sweet little dolls. I just can’t help myself.
I am drawn to them.
Even if my sewing room looks like a voodoo doll lounge.
And even if I am running out of stuffing and have taken to tearing up one of my pillows to stuff one of the little bodies on my bed.
And even if I DO perfect the design that is evolving in my head and at my fingertips at the moment…. (the closest thing to a true Waldorf Doll that I will ever make.)
It will still have my spin on it.
My undeniable stamp of Quirk.
My dolls will always be different and unique in their own way.
A little Mainstream mixed with a little Crunchy, just like ME.
And I am Sooooo good with that.
Have you ever made a doll? And not just a Waldorf….I mean any doll?
Tell me all about it please.
Now, please share with me what you are working on below in the comments with a link… I am going to attempt to keep a list of participants in a link on my sidebar and update it weekly starting in the next week or so.
Oh Yea, and there is a Flickr Group too!
AND! Take a button if you like.
Lots of love,
