It's been way too long since posting here. My website has a blog, which I like, but I am missing Typepad. Thus posting here.
Much has happened. We moved my dad from Illinois to California and he's doing pretty well. I love that I can now see him nearly every day, rather than every other month. Dad misses his brother. He was able to see him a couple times before he moved.
My first DVD - Cloth Doll Making, showed the nitty gritty of creating a doll. I showed how to sew a body; fill it with stuffing; create a wire armature; draw, sculpt and color a face; applying hair, etc. In this DVD we go into clothing. How to create your own pattern for clothing; creating hats & purses; changing a shoe from a flat shoe to a healed shoe, etc.
In the meantime, happy doll making!
