Welcome to my new Blog!
I am a cloth doll artist. This means I create dolls, or fabric sculptures, from cloth, most high quality quilt cottons.
I have been sewing for many years. I originally taught my self to sew when I was 14. I had high fashion tastes and a second hand budget so something had to give. With a Vogue pattern and my mother’s old Pfaff manual sewing machine I made my self a bright turquoise straight skirt with kick pleat. After that I never looked back. I taught my self to make tailored suits and with the help of books I taught my self pattern making. At some point my sister introduced me to a historical recreation group and I got involved in costuming. This was great fun, so much better then making corporate wear clothing!
Everything I learned designing and sewing clothes and costumes is incorporated in my doll making.
