Design Your Own Cloth Doll Class



   

Create a cloth doll with a unique personality. Start with a pattern for the head and once you see who that is, you will design a body to go with the personality. This could be a 'human' figure or a fantasy figure ­ such as a fairy or an elf. You will end up with a pattern of your own and a unique figure.

Materials for the actual doll will be provided. You should expect to be able to complete 1 doll or parts of several - ­ your choice.

Fabrics for costuming will be up to you ­ and not needed until the final 2 days, giving you time to collect up the ‘stuff’ after you decide ‘who’ you are making.

What you need to bring to class -  

* Sewing machine  (or make arrangements to share) (please make sure you have all of the parts including an extra bobbin and small needles.  This is also a great time to use a clear plastic or open foot if you have one.
*  scissors for cutting paper and cloth
* favorite stuffing tools (if you have them).  Hemostats will be provided for your use.
*  straight pins
* your close-up glasses if you need them
* clothing fabrics and thread to match (not needed until day 3 but feel free to bring in to 'audition' anytime if you wish)
* buttons, beads, ribbon and other embellishments
*  chair if you are planning to make a seated doll

What Charlie will supply (covered by the materials fee):

* Fabric for the face and hands
* Basic yarns for hair (can be augmented by students if they wish)
* Polyester stuffing
* Needles for hand sewing
* Thread for hand sewing
* Hemostats for use (available for sale, optional)
