folk,and memory dolls.
I am still waiting for some vintage fabrics and lace to use in the postcard pictures.In the meantime I have been working on my folk inspired 'memory' dolls. I wanted to use retro style i.e. old fabric! so I could get more unplanned results, and I am really pleased with how they have come out.
I wasn't sure about the hair, so I went back to my inspiration pictures of ladies in various costumes and redid the hair in felt.
The other things I have been doing are felt badges for easter. I like to try and make something for the children so that it isn't all chocolate. Although we do get through a fair bit of it!
Plus a bit of French inspiration.
I am going to put these onto Folksy in a mo seeing as the shops have had easter eggs for ages already!
