Soft in the 'ead!

Not me personally, but some may argue! I have been playing with dolls again, and I wanted to make something a little different.

First I joined some fabric together and made a template for the doll shape I required.
I did two different shapes, stitch them, cut them out and stuffed them.
Then I started to add features!

Next it was time to add cloths.

The bugs have new out fits too, just waiting for some faces.

 My wonderful friend Caroline and fellow MemorARTi told me of a new craze, Pocket Letters. It sounded interesting so I went on line to have a look. Jeannette Lane developed these little beauties when she was trying to come up with a cheaper method of Project Life. The idea is to fill the nine pockets of a base ball folder with card and all sorts of decorative stuff and of course a letter, You the fold into thirds pop it in an envelope and post it to a fellow Pocket Letter Trader. It looked like such good fun that I joined a group and now I have made my first pocket letter. (s)

Base ball card holder. I already had some of these as I store the groups A/T/C'sin them and they do look great.
Decorative card stock cut to 2.5 inches by 3,5.
Just add imagination and play!

I made a few.
This is a great way of send fun arty stuff to each other in the post, and I love snail mail.

See you next time, xxxxxx
