A while ago Elsa posted about dolls which started me thing about making dolls- again. Years ago I became infatuated with volks dolls, especially the 1/6th scale. But adding yet another projects to drawing, painting, and sewing seemed pretty over whelming. But after Elsa’s post, I reconsidered making dolls and perhaps making them out of cloth. When I was a child, my favorite doll was my Bradley pose doll, who I still have. I started searching for tutorials on how to make something similar and found some great resources and inspiration~
