In my quest to make as simple a doll as possible I made this 'finger doll' in the shop yesterday.
I started by just drawing round my longest finger for a pattern and then pulled out some pretty scraps to sew together. I'm not happy with the hair. Any alternative hair suggestions? Or hat suggestions? And I won't be sewing a ribbon round the neck of future dolls.
My shop neighbour, Tara, thinks it's hilarious. I pretended to be crushed - that I'd been making one for her birthday!! Not really of course. But with friends like Tara I will never take myself too seriously. But I have faith in this doll, that's why last night I cut out eight more in different fabrics to sew up today!
