I am missing the ASG Spring Retreat this weekend. I am so bummed. But I promised myself I would sew here at home, and I have gotten a little bit done. I also have new high scores on a couple of games, but that's no one's fault but my own.
I volunteered to make a few dolls for a friend's daughter to take to the Honduras. They hand out the dolls to the kids there, so the more dolls the merrier. She created a .pdf file of the pattern and posted it on our ASG website, so I got the pictures, patterns and instructions from there. I sew, I sing, and I can do page layout on the computer, but I do NOT draw, so The Beard drew faces for me.
Three boys and three girls. I cut out bodies and scarves from scraps of fabric that I had lying around (seriously: lying around in my sewing room--clean up!)
There are all the pieces. And here's the first finished one (except for the hair):
I found that I'm not liking the stuffing process, so I'm going to sandwich it in between other sewing activities. I should still have them all done by tomorrow. Yay!
More dolls and more sewing later.
