When I was given some coloured felt last week I immediately thought of making some fabric dolls, knowing that I had a roll of calico and lots of fabric pieces. I used the pattern of the 'black apple doll' but with some variations, including adding a 1cm seam allowance for arms and legs to the original pattern. Of course I had to add some wool for their hair and some ribbons for colour. The faces were drawn with soft Faber Castell coloured pencils. Candy is my favourite and I will probably keep her but the other dolls will be going to some little girls via the NSW Womens Refuge Centre. I hope they make them smile.
