So I did it!
I got the two current batches of dolls that I had on the go completed yesterday.
Now that might not sound like much to you, but I’m pleased as punch.
You see I’m always a tiny bit worried that the old “making mojo” might desert me mid-make – especially when working on a lot of things at the same time.
There are actually some more dolls still to come… I’ll be starting those shortly.
I got a bit daunted part-way through the cutting-out process and decided not to do them all at once, as one huge, single batch.
I fancy it was the thought of coming up with lots of similar-but-different variations on a theme – I was wondering whether I might actually run out of variations?
But with several piles of the most beautiful fabrics designed by Sarah Campbell to inspire me, both new and vintage, I’m happy to say that it shows absolutely no sign of happening yet.
In fact, my making mojo is feeling particularly perky.
So much so that when I had finished the dolls, I decided to sew something else.
Just for a change.
I’d realised I was out of cord for making calico bags (to package the dolls, and needing to be sent off with them) and it was too late to go and buy more.
So instead of immediately cracking on with those as I originally intended, I made a new thing.
I’ll show you what I made tomorrow. ♥
