The dolls grow out of a pattern cut from my coffee training folder.
They multiply. And fill up, one by one, with wool.
Then they grow hair. French knots, tied with embroidery floss.
And then they get dressed. These dolls like fancy dresses.
Cut from scraps of Liberty cotton.
They all try on different fabric scraps.
Which are then cut into multiples of geometric shapes for bodices.
Ties for hair.
Trapezoids for skirts.
The shapes are stitched together.
Pretty soon they are all dressed.
And posed for show.
