I began making dolls 30 years ago. I started out making cloth dolls. Unfortunately,
I didn't take a lot of pictures of my first dolls, and those few pictures are put away somewhere...so all I have are pictures of my latest designs.
I remember making a lot of Mop dolls, and primitive dolls. My favorite were the baby dolls. It took me years of making Miss Martha dolls when I decided I wanted to make my own patterns. I have boxes and boxes of patterns that I have designed. I made so many cloth dolls that I think I got burned out. That's when I decided to try sculpting.
The first doll pictured above is "Marzipan", a pattern I designed that uses a photograph
transferred onto the cloth face. She is about 21 inches and stuffed with high loft fiberfill. I made the wig. She has been sold.
The last doll pictured is "Margaret". Same pattern,
So there you have it.... The 30 year history of my doll making, through my last few posts.
