As the photographs show everyone who comes to the sewing group is lovely.We all chat and share most things and help each other. Most people have finished their first doll,some completly by hand others using the sewing machine. The faces and hair caused most problems but I did point out that after making so many dolls those two things are still my biggest problem. I have a shoe box in my workroom full of heads I'm not happy with. I did show them how to get the proportions right and suggested doing quite a few practise drawings were a good idea.
No bought patterns were used. I took in a selection of arms, legs and body shape drawings and they choose whatever they wanted to put together . Sometimes not quite making choices I might have made but they all were delighted with their first results .I have nearly finished my doll and hope to post her wednesday.
