Spunbond Dolls

I make dolls from time to time, and have found that lutradur and evolon are both wonderful for doll making.  The one above is a lilac love fairy; her body is made of evolon, which I painted using fabric paints, and added the detail with silver gutta.  Gutta isn't just for silk painting; it's wonderful for adding detail on any type of cloth.  Her wings are made from lutradur, which had been transfer dyed.  Why not try it out for yourself?

How sweet! I bet DD would like one of these - I'll put it on my 'to do' list!

They are fun to make, and of course, you don't have to finish off the edges, so the seam can be on the outside like this one if you choose.
