Create a female doll with a unique personality as you customize the face. We will start with a pattern for an adult female figure.
Pattern for the body will be provided.
We will wire her and use felt balls for the joints so she can be posed.
Fabric for head, hands and the felt balls will be provided.
The first 2 days we will get the doll made and begin to plan the costuming. The final 2 days we will design clothing and create patterns to create the outfit you want for your figure.
You will bring fabric (100% quilters cotton) for the bodies. Options for hair will be available (included) or you can bring you own. All the fabric you could need are available in the shop.
